The government needs to get over their fear of home brew, because those that do for drinking purposes will do so anyway and most of them are never caught. In my youth I remember teens dropping yeast in gallon jars of Indian Summer apple juice and fermenting on top of the hot water heater with a pin pricked balloon to let the CO2 escape. Placed in freezer and later strain out the applejack. Some just mixed just mixed sugar and water, made everclear and added koolaid for flavoring. Many just went for "grass" in Florida since it was cheaper and more readily available from friends in the 60-70's. Who was doing most of it then? Yeah, teens. Who will do it anyway now? Yeah, teens.
Seriously though, most who would make their own home alcohol for engine use wouldn't choose to drink such an inferior tasting product anyway, not to mention a lot of it would already be polluted by contaminants due to the materials used for the distillery.
There's really no moral reason behind the government's actions concerning home brew ethanol, it's all about taxes instead. It's been about taxes ever since the Whiskey Rebellion in the 1790's. After 200 years it's time we put such foolishness and overt government oppression behind us. If you want to start looking for the death of freedoms in this country, that's a good place to start, because the same activity has been going on over and over again in all aspects of our lives since that time.
The biggest threat to innovation and advancements in this country has always been government and it's jealousy for power and greed for taxes.
