Most of your support goes to the venesuealan troublemakers.
Well the idiot in charge down there can easily have an "accident".....................

Well if we shift ALL of the foriegn aidd grain production to oil crops we can make a big dent in the imported oil.........let the Genteticly engineered corn fearing idiots starve.

There is a BTU difference, but as someone said, the base stock of 80% matters. Generally, I am dismissive of worries about B20 because alot of the engine differences you now notice on B20 are a result of them being new, and the engine noises on dino that you think are "normal" are just what you've grown used to over the years. I would think based on B20's much higher lubricity that you will hear louder moans on the dino garbagio. As for Middle Eastern oil, the U.S. began curbing its Iraq imports, and middle eastern imports in about 2000. Some say (including Wolfowitz) that it's because the administration wanted to do what they are doing now (militarily) without major supply disruptions. Point is, expect increased Middle Eastern imports in next 4 years. Pee analogy accurate. Those oily bas#@rds would be out of business in a Texas minute without billions in taxpayer assistance. Let's give it to farmers and U.S, entrepreneurs to make biofuel, whether you believe in the infamous global warming or not!

I went to B20 but didn't see anyting worth noting. No better mileage, sound the same (don't care one way or the other) and exhaust still just as unpleasant (not that I sniff the exhaust much)

OK. They are cutting down middle eastern oil because of the situation. How does that translate to higher imports? I thought the companies imported whatever they could get if the price was right?
