Biofuel for Debate
For more than a year, Mahlon Mitchell did not realize that his Chevy Tahoe sport utility vehicle was capable of burning E85, a fuel that's 85% ethanol and 15% gasoline.
He bought the Tahoe two years ago, with 25,000 miles on it, and the previous owner never said anything about using fuel refined from corn. Only recently did he learn, from an employee of the state Agriculture, Trade and Consumer Protection Department, that his Tahoe was E85-capable.
Mitchell, of the Madison suburb of Verona, was far from alone.
