Default Re: has anyone tried e85 yet?

Oh the corn farmers loved it but the livestock farmers didn't. Think about it, just about every livestock (and pet) feed is corn based. The price of cattle, chicken, pig, sheep, etc. feed skyrocketed right when the price of gas was at it's highest.
Making fuel out of food is just plain dumb no matter how you look at it. E-85 made out of switchgrass, wood waste or the like is great but taking food away to turn it into a poor gas substitute is not right.

Worst part is the State of Michigan and our lovely governess/queen backed the E-85 plant to the tune of 50 mil. and guess who pays for that great investment.
