did they also factor in all the gas/fuel used in the production/transportation of said corn??? i think not
I’ve always pointed out that irritation pumps run on natural gas or diesel. Farm machines run on diesel, trucks to haul the product turns on diesel and the processes to cook down the corn use energy of some kind. The refineries use extra energy to blend the ethanol into the gasoline. Then you are left with a less btu dense fuel.
Nothing rational or scientific about this debacle. Engines are more expensive and don’t last as long. Oh well. At least berkshire hathoway is always a winner.
