'There's a lot of money in [the situation]... consumers are going to be hurt.'
'EPA says it's impossible to do years of testing [for possible side effects] in months', yet consumers have done just that!
And of course there are the farm subsidies on corn-growing to muddy the waters.
Anyway, very informative. Thanks for the post.
I should have known about the separation. So-called gas tank cleaners are simply a form of alcohol. Since it's also a petroleum product it will burn in the cylinders. Since it's shape is similar to water (both somewhat polar), and since water goes to the bottom of the tank, it mixes (I think it's called miscibility) with the water and takes it up to the cylinders to burn. This is the same situation, but with (it seems) a more corrosive alcohol in a larger amount, and repeated every fill-up.
BTW ethanol is the drinkable one. Remember the line from White Cargo? The Doc pours whisky on the native's leg to disinfect a wound. When the man cries out, the Doc says, "Hurts, doesn't it? Imagine what it does to the lining of your stomach."
