Sure, they mention that you'll need the permit, but the general gist is that with some starchy foodstuffs (corn, sugarcane, etc.) you'll be well on your way to $1/gallon gas. Maybe I shouldn't be so skeptical of how simple it all seems in Technoride's description. I know that the man I interviewed had a heck of a time getting any ethanol out of his still when he first fired it up. But if more people tried to make gas at home, we'd all have someone nearby who'd done it before and they'd be whom we'd turn to for our gas needs, not the gas station. That sounds good, doesn't it?
