in other words if you have to burn 2 gallons of fuel to get one gallon and then that one gallon only will go 2/3rd of the same distance as the old fuel you used to form the new fuel..
you can't sustain that.. and it's a fools game..
as far as e85 being cheaper than race fuel.. it is not..
and never will be... you pay the difference in your taxes as they subsidize ethnol.. and that will be on the cutting block as the us is broke..
the true cost of ethnol need to be reported.. cause it is a wastefull fuel to bring to market.. and very costly once you take the subsides away...
you know the subsides everyone wants to take from the oil companies...
Ethanol is less energy dense than petrol/gasoline but it is often proportionally cheaper so you should do the same miles per gallon. I think the gasoline subsidies should come off too
