Comments on: The EPA made the right call on renewable fuels http://blogs.reuters.com/great-debate/2013/11/19/the-epa-made-the-right-call-on-renewable-fuels/ Thu, 21 Jul 2016 07:57:19 +0000 hourly 1 http://wordpress.org/?v=4.2.5 By: iowafarm http://blogs.reuters.com/great-debate/2013/11/19/the-epa-made-the-right-call-on-renewable-fuels/#comment-78309 Sat, 23 Nov 2013 14:25:43 +0000 http://blogs.reuters.com/great-debate/?p=26000#comment-78309 It’s mighty odd that Brazilians have had complete choice as to what amount of ethanol to put in their cars for several decades while we keep getting less choice and more lies from Big Oil. Brazil has been energy independent for decades while we are sadly, not. If cars run on ethanol in Brazil, they will run in the USA. In Brazil, prices for gas and ethanol are both given and the consumer figures out the best blend to use to save $$ on any given day. Why don’t we have that choice? We have so much excess corn this harvest that we are selling crops below production cost. Ethanol production produces distillers grains used to feed cattle which is better than corn, anyway. Less ethanol will mean less corn grown and if food insecurity is what the EPA wants, then that is what they will get. I remember before ethanol how dirty the air was and how much cleaner it is now. The lies and articles like these smack of Big Oil and Big Auto trying to cut costs at consumer ad farmer expense.

Maybe your vehicle is not old enough?

Maybe this is really just a sop to the oil companies, who are upset they aren’t selling as much oil as they used to.
