you could always just introduce an ethanol powered car. One that will only work on the shit. I mean like a 14 to 1 compression ratio. It won't be able to run on gas, but at least you can make it more efficient and get better mileage than running it in a gas engine with 8.5 to 1 ratio. But that would mean that manufactures would have to make a whole separate line of vehicles, and then the cost of the ethanol would just go up to the same as or more than gas anyway.

Bottom line, you are gonna pay more for less because they know you will. Whatever cheaper option they decide to bring to market, you will jump to buy it.

sorry, just full of hate as of late

Just dump some acetone in there and call it good

China makes somewhere around 1/2 the worlds peanuts.

I thought they would be running around on nut juice by now. Yea, I find it funny to think of filling up the tank with 20 gallons of nut juice. I think you would need a nut juice heater in the tank to keep it from freezing to the medal parts. Maybe the nut juice puts to much emissions for a modern cat to handle. Or the rings can not hold the nut juice against the cylinders. It could be something dangerous like the nut juice causing the tank to expand under pressure until it ruptures.

I wouldn't want to see what the pump for nut juice would look like.

After the initial dumb wore off I took my foot off the brake and pushed the electric pedal and off I went, slowly but surely.

If anyone has one and it needs to go to the body shop the batteries do not like to be cooked like the paint does.
Electric cars have their shortcomings, but teaching stupid people how to operate them is a minor one.
