    There is a problem. Not all vehicles are designed to accept this mixture.

    It can screw up gaskets,perhaps injectors blah blah blah

    Our Toyota dealer suggests we not not use these mixtures. Only the newer
    models.

    Not only that that using corn increases the price of corn across the board.

    Should be using switchgrass or hemp and driving the most fuel efficient vehicles = the answer

    Clearly, the answer to this problem is another regulation or two or another law...maybe a bigger fine. That'll do it.

    What does that have to do with the government mandating manufacturers use a fule that does not exist?
