RE: [Chrysler300] Ethanol production by State

Thanks John,

That is interesting.  The charts show about 15 billion gal / yr nameplate
capacity for the current US ethanol plants and actual production in 2015
very close to that.

The Exxon article noted federal mandated use of 17 billion gallons ethanol
in 2015 which may have been missed or maybe some ethanol was imported.
However, in six years (2022) the federal mandate is to blend in 36 billion
gallons ethanol which really expands this ridiculous ethanol fiasco.   More
than twice existing plant capacity is needed, unless we import much more

Maybe when these mandates were conceived the hope was that by this time
prairie grass or something else we don't eat would be a big part of the
biomass, but that hasn't worked out, so you would think the mandate might be

I like to eat my corn and fortunately I can still easily get non-ethanol gas
here in the Great Northwoods of Wisconsin.   Around here regular non-ethanol
is currently about $2.05 / gallon;  E10 regular is about $1.95 / gallon.

If anyone wants to know here is a listing of the total production of 
Ethanol by state for the entire country. It lists the rated capacity 
and the actual production. I wouldn't use the stuff for any reason 
and have ruined one engine in the past. University of Nebraska 
produced this listing. Around here the actual production of corn last 
summer was above 200 bu per acre. Every kernel went to the Cargill 
plant about 20 miles from the home place. The rumor mill says that 
with the low price of corn recently the Ethanol production will 
continue for some time. You can do the math at a 50 cent per gallon 
subsidy there is money to be made by somebody somewhere. John...
