Good reason is that cellulose ethanol production is hardly above a demonstration level and nowhere near the 1 billion gallons. However the government continues subsidize this boondoggle.
My big fear is that the ethanol boondoggle and the EPA will mandate a 15% ethanol gasoline blend which they "claim" is safe to use in vehicles made since 2001. Check you owners manual folks using an ethanol blend above 10% voids your warranty. Using this crap will rot your fuel system and cause major damage to your engine.
EPA Fines Companies Because They Didnt Use A Fuel That Doesnt Exist
next Dear Leader will fine us for not fueling up our flying unicorns with Congressional pixie dust
Yep. The 10% cost me 500 bucks to rebuild the carburetors on my outboard engine and 50 bucks to rebuild same on my gasoline generator.
Some are saying “use premium”, but that’s no help. It is 10% also.
Others are saying to use stabilizer. I’ll try it and see if it works.
I used to have a station nearby that had ethanol free gas. Sadly they closed a while back. I always got gas for the lawn equipment there.

Boondoggle it is too.
I’ve worked in one of those places. IF getting a gallon of gasoline out of a barrel of crude oil is tough, try getting a gallon of ethanol out of several hundred pounds of cane waste is about 100 times tougher. Liberalism is a MENTAL DISEASE.
That is exactly why weed eaters and small engines are constantly conking out. The ethanol burns them up.
