    I had this on FB a couple months ago and Ethanol always brings out the best in people so I thought I would share it here. :)sphss We got invited to an open house at the Carbon Green Ethanol plant in Lake Odessa, Mi. in September. What an interesting place and a model of efficiency. They use...

    I've been using stainless braided hose, (stainless over rubber), for fuel lines for 40 plus years. I've used them for pump gas, race gas, and alcohol without any issues, until a week ago. I always drain my fuel, especially alcohol, to prevent it from attacking/eating uncoated aluminum and...

    One of the main reasons food prices are spiking is because 25% of the corn crop is being used to mfg. the Govt. mandated supply of ethanol. Next year 50% of the crop is to be used to make this shit. It is putting a strain on all of our other grains. Food prices are really going to skyrocket next...
