Where do you buy it?
I keep hearing about ethanol and other alternative fuels and how it is supposed to be cheaper than regular gasoline. But when I search for a station that says they sell it, often they are sold out.
Correct me if I’m wrong, but I thought companies were in business to make profits. If one single gas station that sells E-85 in Overland Park is constantly sold out, wouldn’t that sort of raise some eyebrows?
Why aren’t other gas stations carrying this product? And what is keeping local governments from using it? Especially with regular gas prices hovering just below $3 a gallon.
A person could save money using this fuel. Or are we so addicted to unleaded gasoline that other fuels seem just too ridiculous?
I guess my main question is, besides the one ethanol gas station in Overland Park, where can I buy this alternate fuel?
Try other plant material
There have been stories about a possible shortage of corn for ethanol fuel. It is also a shame to waste a consumable grain for a fuel source. Cellulose processing is a way to use the corn stalk, wood waste and switchgrass to generate ethanol. The most prolific and densest plant with record production this year is ragweed. I propose that it should be harvested to near extinction, and see if anyone has regrets.
