This is the fourth topic you've hinted at the same idea in the last year and in at least two of the previous three you were informed that sugar beets would perhaps provide the best yield... Remember...???
How much time and effort are you willing to invest into trying to plant a crop, harvest it, process it to a point where it can be fermented, ferment it, distill it, dispose of the residual byproducts, and not have nearly as much fuel as you might expect for your efforts..??? You'd be further ahead to grow a cash crop that you could sell and then just purchase your fuel with the profits... Don't try pushing going green beyond practicality unless you don't have anything better to do with your life... Not being sarcastic, simply being honestly realistic...

Yes, but widespread agriculture and use of pesticides have not been around for hundreds of thousands of years, as well as Colony Collapse Disorder. When I was a kid, my dad went from 21 multi-box hives to nothing within a matter of a couple of years.
