I too am pro the first part.I know I am in the minority here on this issue.
But I am pro sustainable and domestic energy and fuels... Ethanol falls into this category.
1-1/2 ounces of that fuel isn't going to make any difference. This is a 100:1 oil that's going in and that's when it's added to 2.5 gallons of fuel. When you add such a small amount to a 10 gallon tank, it should not do any harm at all.Fuelmiser
I may not know what I am talking about, but it sounds like a bad idea to me to add 2-cycle oil into your tank. Anyone have any more expert opinions on this than I?
I 100% agree... Ethanol is not a miracle cure all... there are many issues and problems ... it has both pros and cons.... as do any of the effort at solutions.Ethanol is only a drop in the bucket maybe in reguards to the first part, with a different set of serious problems.
While I agree the food issue is a concern ... and definitely should not be ignored ... I do not view it as an automatic deal buster.But I have an ethical issue with burning "food" for fuel. And _any_ plant based alcohol is not carbon neutral, unless acreage currently in production is used (the food issue again).
Until the biggest issue of them all comes up - overpopulation. Then the percentages add up to more than 100%. Unfortunately I feel that there isn't much we can do to stop this trainwreck from happening. I guess we just sit and wait.We have finite resources such as energy and land ... it is about balancing the distribution of those resource of land and energy among all of our various needs and desires ... __% of land and energy for Food ... __% of land and energy for shelter ... etc...etc.
There is no over 100%... the people just die.Until the biggest issue of them all comes up - overpopulation. Then the percentages add up to more than 100%. Unfortunately I feel that there isn't much we can do to stop this trainwreck from happening. I guess we just sit and wait.
