Alcohol is a more reasonable choice in a warmer climate. You don't hear about it being used as a motor fuel in Argentina or Manitoba.

Is it not widely used in Canada in gasohol blends? I know from rentals that I've had up there, many are rated for E85. I fairly certain is availble in 48 states year round. Not sure about Alaska and Hawaii.

Hmmm


I suppose I was thinking about those old time relatives that couldn t afford the store bought hooch but did manage to mix up a batch in the woods - mostly free - 'ceptin for the labor. They used to say the only reason the Revenoors wanted to stop it was cause they couldn t figure a way to tax it !


I know there's kits to make wine at home - and I believe you can make 250 gallons ( quarts ? ) per quarter without owing anything to the Fed's .


250 gallons at a miniscule 10mpg per quarter = 10,000 miles per year on alcohol - not too bad for those that " brewed " their own :-)


I suppose that would have to be 180-190 proof ?


Although " tongue in cheek " surely if we studied it some - maybe . . . .
