Why not it produces 6 times

Why not it produces 6 times the ethanol per acre as corn? It could easily change the industry IMO. We could easily produce enough ethanol to be energy independent on just 1% of the land not even using duckweed. With duckweed we could use land not used for crops and not even use a 6th of what we need with corn. There are a lot of myths about ethanol put out by big oil it is a very viable fuel. I even had a mechanic tell me ethanol clogs up engine... I about laughed him out of the place engines last twice as long on ethanol as there is no carbon build up. Big oil propaganda has been very successful.
