People used to eat tapeworms to control their weight, and drink mercury as a contraceptive. Just cause it was done in the past doesn't mean it's better.

When it comes down to it, if in the future you are driving an 'alternate fuel' vehicle you're gonna have the least negative impact on the environment and your wallet (assuming the fuel source becomes mainstream) with hydrogen or full electric using an efficient power plant to recharge your cells. Making fuel from food on a global scale is just....silly.
