Do you support a federal law mandating all cars sold in the U.S. be flex fuel?

Flex fuel cars are available now, for about $100 more than non-flex fuel cars, but only on a few models. If every car were flex fuel it would cost consumers almost nothing, would give a big boost to companies trying to boost ethanol production, and reduce our dependence on foreign oil.

Update: A 2008 Chevrolet Impala has MSRP $21,310 and there is a FREE flex fuel option.

So don't give me that "it costs too much lie"!

Update 2: Ethanol is not the only alternative fuel. Methanol is another and better bio fuel. It can be made from anything, like weeds, leaves, trash, anything organic. Cheaply. If there was a market. If there were enough cars to burn it. Listen to this audio program (quite long, but really... show more Ethanol is not the only alternative fuel. Methanol is another and better bio fuel.

Update 3: The program talks about a recent bill in Congress to mandate flex fuel cars that was killed by the Japanese car lobby, because American car makers are better at making flex fuel cars than the Japanese. Mandating flex fuel would be as cheap as mandating seat belts, and we already do that.
Update 4: Only large cars are now available with a flex fuel option. I would like to buy a small, fuel efficient car with a flex fuel option, but none are available right now! The mandate would cost the consumer little or nothing and would not even tie us to ethanol, because flex fuel cars could use gasoline or even... show more Only large cars are now available with a flex fuel option.

But lobbies from foreign car makers and oil suppliers got the bill killed.
Update 5: Since 60% of our oil is imported, moving away from foreign oil gets us 60% of the way to being COMPLETELY off oil. Don't you want a FREE way to get 60% of the way to the goal?
Update 6: Everybody keeps saying corn, corn, corn, while ignoring METHANOL and other ways to make ethanol that are not dependent on corn.
Update 7: Michael C, This proposal would NOT prohibit diesel cars. It would only prohibit the sale of new cars that are limited to using only gasoline as a fuel. And since the option is presently offered for FREE, it is no financial burden on either the consumer or the manufacturer.

It does not prohibit diesel, or electric, or hybrid, or hydrogen cars or any other kind of car. It expands choices, not limits them. The only choice it limits is the choice of the car manufacturers to limit the buyer's choices.
