Hadn't even thought of the fire hazards. E85 is inefficient and unsustainable ecologically, drives up the price of other food crops as land is diverted for corn, not to mention what it's doing to the rest of the food chain (cattle, pork and chicken feed is primarily corn). Uses tons of water and has a poor energy return on energy investment. In a word: "Boondoggle".
