From the article:
Earlier this month, California Democrat Dianne Feinstein joined forces with Oklahoma Republican Tom Coburn to introduce a Senate bill to strip ethanol completely from the Renewable Fuel Standard, also known as RFS. Although Feinstein continues to champion renewable fuel, she has expressed concerns that excess corn-based fuel production—mainly due to the RFS requirements—is "really not wise," and that the standards may hurt the Golden State's livestock producers.

The bipartisan nature of that bill, combined with the EPA's proposal, sent corn futures reeling on the Chicago Board of Trade in early December.
The above is a negative article on ethanol, as used in low compression ratio gasoline engines. However, not mentioned is the low energy production from ethanol & often unburned in a low compression ratio gasoline engine. In an admitted low percentage of gasoline engines, 10% ethanol blend mpg drops 10% or more compared to 100% gasoline(ethanol-free), meaning that ethanol provides NO additional power output. However, in a majority of gasoline engines, 10% ethanol blend mpg drops 5% to 8+%, meaning that ethanol provides little power.

Ethanol in gasoline is coming to an end. Politics just move inefficiently...... almost as inefficiently as ethanol used in a low compression ratio gasoline engine.

Blah, blah, blah; this is just more of the same old nonsensical crap that you always post.

You must have one seriously hard head if you can keep beating it against a wall like this. angry-bangheadonwall.gif

Maybe that's why you can't figure out that most people here don't care and are sick of hearing your BS. confused-scratchhead3.gif

I understand that he does have a low signal-to-noise ratio, but there's no reason to let it get personal. Thank you.
