I think government investment into something that can fundamentally change things for the better is the right thing to do. I don't say forever, but I do say so to get the ball rolling. A venture that is set to take on the oil companies (who really are dug in to the roots of western culture) needs some government backing just to get them up to the same playing field. What happens after that is "the market". I'd buy bio-ethanol if I had a car that could run it. In fact, I'm going to make a concerted effort to convert mine once I think I can fuel on bio-ethanol alone, but it is going to have to be a little more widespread before I can do that. The county in which I live is plentiful with pumps that supply bio-ethanol, but I can't guarantee that elsewhere in the country and I think I'd need to ditch conventional ignition before I could run a closed-loop fuel injection system that could understand fuel from low grade petrol to high octane E85. My C900 T8 is going to need some fettling with :) Paul 1989 900 Turbo S http://saab.go.dyndns.org/
