So, stop using corn and other foods. Bio can be made from just about any crop, Cat tails actually give more fuel than the same amount of corn. So does hemp.
The food/fuel argument is bogus and sponsored by the fossil fuel industry.

Using 'vegetation waste' like chaff, stems, and spoiled harvests to produce ethanol or methanol fuel along with recycling expired and used cooking oils and extracting fuel-grade oil from hardy 'grow anywhere' plants like Industrial Hemp is sustainable. Displacing food crops is NOT!
