I really dislike this whole attempt to convert food product crops into vehicle fuel. It sounds like a really great idea on the outside, but on anything other then a very small scale it's not an efficient use of material at all. It's kind of like the meat industry; far more energy units are put into producing the meat then the meat will ever yield itself. You're much better off just using the crop to feed/inebriate people and instead invest in renewable energy which's only purpose is just that.
What would be revolutionary is if they spent money on inventing a super-high efficiency battery instead which would eliminate needing a combustion fuel source, and then you could just have everyone running off electricity. The electricity would be generated completely from domestic renewable processes, eliminating emissions and oil importation almost completely.
Or if they can't figure out the battery, there is always hydrogen, (which would also be created from domestic renewable processes as well)
