    You can do so much else with corn but Google choose to do this...

    corn fuel is crap. It takes 1 gallon of corn fuel to make 1.1 gallons. It is not some great thing. All it does is drive up the price of food for the rest of us as land is used to grew corn which takes a huge amount of a fossil fuel fertilizer and takes a fair amount of energy to break down to make ethanol.

    Top it off it drives up the cost of beef because corn is one of the main things for it. Other food goes up as more land goes to corn and so on.

    Save the corn for a more efficient purpose. There are other, better alternatives.
