You said the key phrase Jon. "if ethanol had the infrastructure!". I have often felt the ethanol industry got what it asked for in that it was content to instantly build demand through politics and be considered an additive instead of becoming a entirely separate competing fuel source. The roadblocks that kept the ethanol industry from owning their own fleet of trucks, c-stores, etc are what should have been taken down and the route that should have been taken. It would have taken longer to develop the market but in the end it would have been better for the industry. "Pull in to the ethanol station where you can get ethanol splash blended with a little petroleum of you choice." Instead, we get, "Pull into our gas station where we can sell you junk grade 85 octane gas splash blended with a little ethanol to get its octane back". And listen to you blame the ethanol for your vehicles substandard performance and not the 85 octane. If you want to be an additive then you will get treated like an additive! I love E-30 in all my gas burners!
