I'm ok with ethanol made from anything, but let's not pass out $.51 a gallon to anyone that makes it and end the Federal mandates. If it's worth it to people they can buy it, just don't ask me to subsidize it for them.

BTW - I've been running e85 almost exclusively for over 3 years now in my EVO and love it. It is $1.19 a gallon race gas.
