Hi Greg

But you can grow more hay.

Speaking of hay, Jan. 1 was the start of mandated ethanol @5% in all gas sold in Manitoba. So, when I filled up at a Safeway bar I asked the clerk if I now had some gasohol in my tank. Not a clue.

1-800 to Safeway in Denver, also no clue, even the local store mgr. did not know.
1-800 to Man. Gov't., seems the one person who could answer is away from his desk LOL
A local radio show brings out that it is 85% crap shoot. You may get 0-5% in your gas depending on which station you go to.

Only good thing is we now produce 130 million litres of ethanol a year from discarded straw and the leftover is used as cattle feed.

Media reports are predicting we will pay $1.30 a litre by summer.
1.30times 3.78=$4.91 a U.S gallon.

(Since I got my Honda Fit in April 2006 I have only spent $944 for 13,600 KM @ 41 MPG. Imperial.)

Hi

I noticed the sign at my gas station the other day " contains less than 10% ethanol".

Looks like Florida has 5 ethanol plants on the drawing boards at this time. The main source will be sugar cane.
