Ethanol and gesture politics

Trollhattan Saab says Queensland’s Premier Peter Beattie has ordered a biofuel Saab 9-5 that can run on up to 85 per cent bioethanol, a fuel made primarily from grain or cane sugar.

But there’s a catch. While the Saab can run on E85 (an 85 per cent ethanol, 15 per cent petrol mix), the Government car will run on normal petrol…

Is this the sort of cheap gesture that politicians make or some thing bigger?
