Look closely, the sticker on the pump is mighty darn small.

These companies recycling waste products could not exist or survive with subsidies.
I understand the government subsidizes ethanol at $.60 per gallon. Ok. Let's do the math...it's only 60% as efficient as gasoline...it is subsidized at 1/3 the selling cost of gasoline and it drives up the price of food and grain....makes about as much sense at Amtrak.

Sorry to rant.
X2. And all this was done BEFORE the current advances in technology with the combination of Hydrofracking and horizontal drilling. We now have MANY years of reserves, especially Natural Gas. There is plenty of time to research alternative and prepare for the future, which we won't do anyway.

Last time I saw him, he was helping Dagny Taggart out of a wrecked airplane.

"Who is John Galt?" originates from either Atlas Shrugged or Fountainhead by Ayn Rand. Dangy Taggert is the heroine in one of them.

Not Dangy, Dagny. And she is from Atlas Shrugged and Atlas Shrugged II.

[QUOTE=Loefflerh;490189]Not to many answers here! Let me ask differently:
- What kind of diesel blend is available in your area?
- What are you doing if you get caught somewhere on a trip and there is only B20 available?


Well, that thread has now 4pages, and I learned who Dagny is.......
