According to the plant supervisor of a local ethanol plant each loaded thank car must have so many gallons of gasoline added before the loaded car is allowed to leave the plant. With out the gasoline added the contents of the car is pure corn liquor .Very potent corn liquor at that. :D (I don't remember how many gallons of gasoline are required)
