How does that sound like it's conserving anything? So basically we're trading gasoline emissions for coal emissions (or whichever power plant runs the ethanol plant) and adding a less clean burning fuel to gasoline. Ethanol also destroys the inside of your engine. It causes condensation. Yeah, cause water is what you want in your fuel system. It's extremely noticeable in tools like trimmers, lawn mowers, etc. The water from the ethanol destroys those little carbs pretty quick. Ridiculous... I think the only people ethanol helps are the farmers who grow corn, because it makes the price of corn go up.
