ethanol & non ethanol gasoline
Posted: Mon May 26, 2008 2:03 am
There are only two stations in the Tomahawk area that now supply non ethanol gasoline for their customers. Non ethanol is better for your vehicle, provides better gas mileage and above all is better for the overall environment. Land used for growing a corn crop is wasted - cannot be used for another crop & is the land is only good for three years. Using corn is also a waste to the food source - people are starving in third world countries & here due to the corn being used to produce gasoline. Europe has already realized the error in trying to use corn for gas - also more costly to make. The gas stations are being forced to change to ethanol - all shipping stations are being changed & will not be able to ship a non-ethanol load to stations. The stations in the area that provide non-ethanol are Charlie's & Kracker Barrel. This will only be possible for about another week or two, then we are stuck with ethanol. As a country we need to wake up. If we want to "green" we need to think about all aspects.
