So ethanol makes at least the same, if not more, 24% more co2 than just burning gasoline.
There you go, this is what happens when well intentioned stupid people are allowed to make decisions. You get renewable fuel, that's actually not renewable.

Even the Brazilian sugarcane-based ethanol relies heavily on Diesel for the agricultural machinery and the logistics, to an extent the late Amaral Gurgel would claim ProÁlcool to be Diesel-powered whenever he had a chance to speak against ethanol.

Recently while talking about fuel quality issues with the owner of a Royal Enfield Interceptor 650, whose worst experiences were with premium gas, he told me he had seen even some prestigious imported cars never available as a flexfuel being remapped to enable operating with ethanol, which is actually easier because direct injections eases the cold start.

This administration has doubled down on stupid. Allowing more ethanol, up to 15% in gasoline. I have throughly tested 4 different vehicles on e10 vs e0. The only one that didn't get lower mileage was a gas murdering ford 4.6L powered Lincoln towncar.
The orange one authorized oil refineries to keep producing winter blend where you get more gasoline per barrel of oil and it's cheaper, well into the summer as long as the states would allow it.

I don't even know how a technical topic, such as octane and oxygenates in engines falls under the executive branch of the US to weigh in on, let alone dictate?

Perhaps the EPA, DOT, and DOE have an interest and some expertise on the subject, but I don't see why the executive branch does. Do government agencies have to go through executive branches when making recommendations, or can they submit them directly to congress?

Where I'm going with this is that we should always be restraining the authority of a single person (executive branch) as appropriate, to distribute that authority to more people.
