E10 - Where to buy ethanol blend gasoline

I am well aware of the problems of using food for fuel but there is still merit in using an ethanol blend of gasoline. After a bit of digging around online, I found a couple sources who work together to provide ethanol gasoline blends produced from Ontario corn: UPI and Sunoco.

There's lots of other stuff other than corn that can be used. Here's a link to one:

Basically any city with a waste treatment plant can grow cattails. They filter the water. Chop them down to make alcohol - they grow back. A city could mix what they make with gas anywhere from 25-85% and run their vehicles. The rest they could sell to us. Just about any car from 1990 and on can run 50-50 without any changes. It costs less than $1 a gallon to make, saves tax money and on and on.

They also never mention how the leftovers from corn alcohol can go right into cow feed. The only thing gone is the starch. The cows pass less gas because they can't digest starch too well.

I have been aware of the evils of corn ever since I read the first chapter of The Omnivore's Dilemma but using cattails to produce ethanol was new to me. Thanks for the heads-up!
