Hard for me to say what I mean. My Ford pickup is Flex-Fuel and can run on ethanol. My Ford has diesel pistons and connecting rods. I filled her up one time with ethanol and noticed decreased performance.

The issue is that straight hemp oil based biodiesel has a cloud point of -1.3 C or about 29 F. So you can't run it straight in much of the world in the winter.

And it won't blend with gasoline, so you blend it with diesel to get a cloud point you can live with but that means the bad of diesel remains.

If someone can fix that cloud point problem, you'd be spot on.
Thanks from Hollywood

Put grease the wheel bearings. Grease is nothing more or less than soap saturated with oil.

Does it still require more calories to produce ethanol than the ethanol itself produces?

If so why the ethanol rage? To appease the clean energy gods? To feed the subsidized corn farmers who in turn push the corn lobby?

I do know that e85 is basically race fuel so that is cool but at what cost?

Everyone is so worried about "climate change" and trump tweets but we are putting corn in goddamn near everything and it is basically poison. Our corn syrup childrens cereal and whatnot is going to make the smoking everyplace of generations past look like rainbows and unicorns
It's never taken more calories in than out in the CBE process, around 1.3 cal out for 1.0 cal in. Sugar cane gets around 8 out fr 1 in.

Ethanol is the rage because GW wanted to "go green," and CBE was a good way to look like yer all green..... which of course, you're nowhere near. The entire CBE exercise can be summed up: Take a bunch of fossil fuel, make fertilizer and other chemicals needed with it, still using fossil fuel, prep the soil, plant, cultivate, apply more fossil-fuel derived fertilizers, herbicides, and fungicides, and with all that fossil-fueled stuff going on a tiny among of fuel will be created.

Really tiny.

It's the high-fructose corn syrup that's a bugger. Corn syrup isn't bad.

But don't pfffft the climate changing. We're completely at the mercy of the Mother. You are aware that gradualism can't explain everything.

Way back in 1940 Henry Ford producer a car that much of the body was made of a plastic made from hemp fiber, stronger than steel but much lighter. The fuel to run it was made from hemp seed oil. That car was featured in a 1940 edition of Popular Mechanics. YouTube has some videos of it that are cool. Unfortunately for us, even henry Ford could not buck the steel and oil industry back then. Before it was made illegal to grow it in the mid 1930's hemp, often called Indian Hemp, was one of the U.S. important crops.
