Why haven’t we had a vehicle mass produced that can run strictly off of ethanol or alcohol? I know there are flexible fuel vehicles that can use a mixture of gasoline and ethanol, but it seems like we should have a vehicle developed by now that can run off of a renewable resource such as alcohol. While there are bio-diesel vehicles, but I don’t believe that is near practical enough for mainstream America. Am I the only person thinking about this issue? Because it seems like since gas is $3 a gallon it would make more sense to buy a slightly more expensive vehicle and then, when the new forms of fuel are in higher demand it would help our economy, so farmers would now be able to make a better living, it would lessen our dependency on foreign fuel, and I believe in time the new forms of fuel would soon be much more affordable then gasoline.
