Corn-O-Hol Woes? I Can Help!

Are you fed up with the Wisconsin State Government shoving gasoline you don't want down your throat?

Are you fed up with terrible, unexpectedly low gas mileage?

Are you fed up with increasingly high emissions and a strange, popcorn smell coming from your tailpipe?

Well, my friend, you are in luck! I have the perfect solution for you!

Here at Disgruntled, we are also the purveyors of fine vehicles that burn on DIESEL. Yes, DIESEL. DIESEL is not affected buy the onslaught of Corn-O-Hol Gasoline. DIESEL is still the same.

And, it gets better.

DIESEL is available in many fine Volkswagen passenger sedans. DIESEL gets 50+ miles to the gallon. DIESEL is not smelly, loud or smoggy in the sedans like in big trucks. Furthermore, today's DIESEL fuel doesn't gel in the winter, so it starts without a hitch. In addition, the fine Volkswagen DIESELS are suprisingly peppy. While the engine only produces 100HP, it is more than compensated by the 177FT/LBS. of torque which gives you great acceleration.

Wait, there's more! DIESEL cars come in a variety of shapes, sizes, and equiptment packages.

There's the New Jetta...

The fun and cute New Beetle...

And coming soon, the all new 2006 Golf!

So, contact me and we'll set an appointment today!

Well, yeah...but. The new sulfur standards for diesel go into effect in about a week and the prie is gonna go up again. The differential is already +.30 or more. Minnesota's requirement for 2% biodiesel kicks in as well.

Diesel ain't no panacea, just a patch on a festering sore. I still don't understand the arguments of the anti-ethanol crowd other than the mandatory blending. Is it being forced to do good that offends?

1. Ethanol emits more emissions than regular gasoline.
2. Ethanol gets poorer mileage than regular gasoline.
3. Ethanol runs poorer (see performance, longevity, reliability, etc.) in cars than regular gasoline.
4. Diesel is more expensive NOW because we are running a winter blend which is made with more propane to prevent gelling. In the summer, diesel is the same price, if not cheaper.
5. The new sulfur standards going into effect will not change the price of diesel. It will only change engine availibility in car lines (see extinct VW Touareg V10 TDI, extinct VW Passat 2.0L I4 TDI).
6. Biodiesel, specifically B5, is GOOD. It does not effect performance, mileage, and emissions.
7. We will get European spec diesel hopefully in a year, continuing to drive down the price of the fuel. With that again comes lower emissions, better performance and more diesel car availibility.
8. Something stunk to high heaven the first time they mandated Corn-O-Hol in the Milwaukee Metro area the first time around (see Bill Clinton).
9. Like the first mandate, it stinks this time.

You see, regardless of dirty money being passed to legislators (which I am sure there is a ton of), the government is restricting a free market. No one, and I mean no one, wants to pump that "Crap"-O-Hol into their tanks.

Any idiot would buy gasoline that provided better mileage, performance, longevity and reliability. Furthermore, any idiot with a conscience would buy gasoline which produced less emissions.

Oh, and by the way, when cars are creating more emissions, the DNR has to find a way to balance it all. They will do this by mandating companies to create less emissions. This will increase cost to said companies, and drive their business out of our state.

With companies leaving the state, so goes much needed tax revenue. And, when that tax revenue goes away, legislators will find a new way to bend their constituents over and drill 'em for more money.

Vicious circle, isn't it?
