Ethanol is THE problem.. add 10% to our gasoline and get 10% poorer fuel mileage. A no-brainer that we then use the same gallons of fuel per mile with or without the added ethanol.
On top of that, we pay more for the fuel (+ 20 cents per gallon) without the ethanol.
And to add, the ethanol fuel is less stable in storage so of poorer quality fuel when added.
Consumers are being shafted.. and know it but can't do anything about it as the "poor" farmers need something to hold the corn prices up.. very false economy.
