I just don't care
The whole ethanol gig had a lot of players involved including farmers, politicians, and list of characters right out of a hollywood script. So what ? It did prove we could make fuel out of corn if we had to which is not a bad idea if our supply gets cut from those OPEC guys.
I am getting to the age where this doesn't matter as long as I can find enough go juice to go where I want to go, I'm happy. Been thinking about them new small diesel rigs if they weren't so expensive I might get one, but I don't need one.
I keep the old rig on the double nickel and she get 9.5 to 10.5 MPG. I'm in no hurry to get anywhere unless I'm in an ambulance.
This blaming this one and accusing that one about this or that is just a wast of time I could be spending taking a nap or a walk in the woods listening to the wind in the trees and trying to catch a fish in a stream or reading a good book. Some things just aren't worth my time to worry or fuss about.
In England where they pay big bucks (er pounds) for fuel they go camping and RV'g a lot and get by just fine smaller rigs, more fuel efficient and yet they have a wonderful time; so can we ! If I had the money I would love to go to GB and do the RV thing there just for kicks and giggles. The point is have a good time doing what you want even if that is bitch'n. As usual YMMV
