    President Donald Trump will order acting EPA Administrator Andrew Wheeler to start the process of lifting a summertime ban on the sale of E15, a type of gasoline-biofuel blend, according to a senior White House official. The change is calculated to shore up demand for biofuels such as corn-based ethanol and boost the fortunes of farmers.

    Some lobbyist is getting a good bonus this year.

    The economics of ethanol don’t play out yet. Once oil gets more scarce and prices go up ethanol and E-85 will make sense. Right now it only drives up prices for food and beef.

    Scrambling to offset the impact of the tariffs and associated fallout. Destroying the planet one get-rich-quick scheme at a time.

    Cordially,

    At taxpayer expense. Cost much subsidy to make that shit low-energy fuel. In fair market, it'd never exist.

    I'd feel better just paying legit farmers payouts, instead of saddling the populace with shitty ass ethanol.

    Except the cost of outboards are still kind of based on market value. Each and all has some govt subsidy. Mostly still, based on kind of free market value.

    This shit ethanol is subsidized by you and me. Govt up my ass and in my boat. It sucks.

    Bring on the diesel OBs!

    More likely you will be putting around with a fancy electric to save the Whales.

    Well, we're generally concerned with the environment and also making sure that our natural resources are protected. But we're also generally skeptical of any of the current administration's actions, including the ones that will likely benefit the minority while shitting on the rest of us.

    Eric, I read you’re post wrong! We are on the same page. I was thinking you were blaming liberals but after I reread I see exactly what you’re saying!
