    I wonder if this guy was merely doing some E85 testing as a preparation for Brazilian market cars.

    Certainly possible. Also possible he grabbed the wrong handle.

    IMO I don't see E85 lasting all that long here in the US...at least at its current cheap pricing. The govt did away with all the subsidies for the farmers who sold corn to produce ethanol, so prices are going up. I'd rather see the US pushing for clean diesel instead of taking the food we could eat and turning it into fuel.
    E85 is here to stay, especially with the new demand for it. Also, corn has ZERO nutritional value (lower demand when compared to carrots or potatoes) so it would be foolish of them to entirely pull out the ethanol-gas market. And at this point, I almost see more E85 pumps then diesel pumps (unless I'm on popular truck routes like the 95 or 78)

    Corn tastes pretty great though.

    Most of the corn grown is for feed. On a different topic, I have a friend that gets used French fry oil from a local restaurant, strains it and uses it to run his old Mercedes diesel. Has had no issues....well, it runs anyway.
