  1. Fun to read some comments from 5 years ago. Don't forget about when cheap subsidized USA corn was going to Mexico and the farmers down there couldn't compete so didn't grow as much. Also, I was talking to a friend from Ohio about ethanol and the RFS a couple of days ago and reminded him that not too many years ago, Big Oil was complaining about not enough refining capacity in this country----not a problem today. Funny how everything swings back and forth. P.S. I sold some new crop soybeans for $12.60 on the CBOT last week after they rallied back from being about 80 cents lower----looks pretty bad today. :'(
  2. Just put some E85 in at Sioux Center Iowa and it was $1.21 less than E0 87.
  3. gasisoutrageous, PM sent with cell number. Thanks
  4. gasisoutrageous, I contacted someone that has friends at Ford and they aren't aware of Flex/EcoBoost. He wondered if you could come up with a picture of both EcoBoost/Flex in the same picture to show his Ford friends?
  5. I like it too. I see Denison is 8 pennies less than Sioux Center and just 40 miles farther. Might help pay for the real nice fuel truck the co op owns.
  6. The traders must have seen my crop report prediction post from the other day, since corn and beans, especially, went up today after the report.
  7. If the commodity "experts" on TV are right, corn should keep going down after the report Monday morning. Ethanol should follow I suppose. I know we don't have a bumper crop around here so if the "funds" succeed in driving corn down into the $3's, I think I might buy some on the CBOT for when "they" decide we don't have this huge corn crop.
  8. I know my cousin's Ecoboost Ford 150 isn't flex but with all the air it can cram into the combustion chamber, seems it should be flex. Wonder if somebody did like Husker and stuck a Flex badge on.
  9. I've been picking at them over at FocusFanatics. One guy from ND posted this and E0 91 will still be available.
  10. A farmer or ethanol advocate must be friends with whoever owns the TV station. Nice segment.
  11. I wonder if that guy drinks any beer or hard liquor?
  12. Tuesday I decided to empty the corn bin. Called down to the ethanol plant at 7:15 AM and sold a semi load for $7.20 per bushel. This Thursday afternoon the bid down there is $5.29. Corn and beans have dropped like a rock. Should be good for ethanol price.
  13. Look at 3.3.4 ionic compounds---- I have the whole PDF in an Email but don't know how to post it here.
  14. Can you post on the E85 website. I have not visited in some time but wanted to see if some of these guys could start contacting the salesmen in their area. Ask these 3 questions and we will see if BG will respond. Unfortunately BG is right here in Wichita. I visited them 3 months ago and now it has turned very negative against me. If the oil companies want to make aggressive ethanol by adding salt, fine. I can make aggressive gasoline by concentrating just the upper 20% of gasoline as see what happens to seals and fuel hoses. How ethanol contributes to free radical oxidation? How does ethanol contribute to carbon deposit? How does ethanol create GLOP? To find your nearest source for BG Products; http://www.bgprod.com/bgdistloc/distloc.php Recently, there has been an increase in the attacks on ethanol and one of the largest companies for various additives is still going too far. B&G Products is putting in auto garages and parts stores in certain areas of the country an ad campaign the mixes facts and myths. Current emails exchanges with this company indicate this isn’t going to change anytime soon. First let’s separate off road issues and this is to include vintage vehicles. Most of the fuel systems for off road and 25+ year old vehicles are open vent which means long term storage has the potential for allowing outside air to breath in and out during temperature changes. This issue comes up a lot in various articles which is the target for many to say ethanol attracts water. What isn’t stated is that this is likely one of the biggest reason for gasoline problems as well. Ethanol is blamed in most cases but gasoline going bad is not due to ethanol but mostly gasoline being exposed to atmospheric conditions. Products that treat the fuel for both long term storage and protecting small engines is good preventative maintenance especially when exposure to outside environmental condition are likely. Gold Eagle, producers of STA-BIL has written a very informative White Paper which covers both gasoline and ethanol which is beneficial in understanding the overall issues of gasoline today. http://www.goldeagle.com/UserFiles/file/STA-BIL%20files/White_Paper_Ethanol_%20Blended_Gasline.pdf Our suggestion is to locate BG’s regional distributors in your area and ask if they are putting out Corporate B&G Products displays as the one copied below. Ask these regional contacts if they can support the data being stated below. http://i1274.photobucket.com/albums/y428/cessna15/Whatsinyourtank_zps18044f09.jpg[/img]
  15. Another thing I find interesting is a few short years ago oil was crying about not enough refining capacity. Guess that's not a problem anymore.
  16. Just read on DTN where RIN's are trading at $1.46 and there is plentiful ethanol supply. Big oil is doing everything they can to not use anymore ethanol and make it look bad. Steve-O, you're right about the youtubes showing midblends being used in older unmodified vehicles.
  17. Well said Husker, if I hadn't done my own testing for the last 12 years with mid blends in early 1990's vehicles, I might believe their garbage.
  18. My 1992 Toyota 4x4 22-RE runs fine on E50 and I put a Split second mixture meter on the O2 sensor and it never runs lean and never throws a CEL.
  19. He is a disgrace. Total oil company puppet---follow the money type of guy. Wasn't it a few short years ago that there was a shortage of refining capacity? What happened?
  20. I don't really know. It sits in the garage most of the time since I never drive it unless I'm going to a town 25 or more miles away. The Mall at Sioux City is the closest to city it's gotten and it's right next to the interstate.
  21. Today my 2012 Focus got 34 mpg. It has 10,700 miles so is getting broken in. I filled at Cleghorn IA, went to the Omaha airport and back to the same pump(7.5 gallons and 255 miles) in about 6 hrs. Half rural and half interstate with little wind.
