Re: [Chrysler300] Biofuel mandate

I live in sort of hinterlands in Michigan. A new ethanol plant was built about 15 miles from where I live. The area was jublilant because there would be new jobs and a boon to area farmers. The jobs were almost all filled by experienced people from other locations. The corn was a boon to the farmers, though. Well, it was a first, anyway. Not so much now.
There have been ongoing attempts in Congress ot get rid of the subsidy for years. I don't think last year's was successful either. The industry itself testifies that it no longer needs the subsidy to be profitable ... but Washington lets it live on.
That stuff sure ain't any good for my "F" -- I know that.

Nothing new here.
ANYONE who understands physics, has known this for many years.
When you dilute gas with 10% Ethanol you then have to burn more than a gallon to go as far as 1 gal of plain gas.
All this  so that 300 million cars have to use gas that the feds mandate must have 10% Ethanol to support 500 Iowa corn growers.
These are your lobbyists at work. Not to mention that the feds pay the refiners of Ethanol, 50 cents a gallon subsidy.
So, every gallon you burn has a 5cent Federal payment included.
Looks to me that this is the first place that the Tea  Party should be  looking to save money.

The link below should take you to an ExxonMobil magazine called the Lamp.  I could not make a direct link to the article about our nations biofuel mandate that might be of interest to some of you.

You will have to go to the table of contents at the bottom on the 2nd page that has the young fellow on the left side; zoom in on the biofuel article, and click on the page no. to go to the one page biofuel article.  My take was that the mandate needs to be reconsidered.
