not this b/s again.. wasn't we to run out in like 85 and then it was like 97,
then 2004, come on..

ethnol takes more energy to make than it produces.. a fuelcell.. can get it's fuel from water.. and when you take the fuel out you still are left with 100% water.. and the emissions is water.. ethnol is a fools game.. even use'n ethnol to heat the sugars to make ethnol. it takes more fuel to go through the prossess to get ethnol.. than you make.. 1/2 acre of crops makes 22-26 gallons of ethnol.. but you'll burn 37-42 gallons try'n to make that 22-26 gallons.. not very bright.. and wastefull..
