Comment on Alice diesel for less than $1? by Michael Dean.

The prevailing explanation for the formation of oil and gas deposits is that they are the remains of plant and animal life that died millions of years ago and were compressed by heat and pressure over the years.
The abiotic theory of oil formation continues to receive attention due to the work of retired Cornell astronomy professor Thomas Gold.
Gold’s theory of oil formation is that hydrogen and carbon, under high temperatures and pressures found in the mantle during the formation of the earth, form hydrocarbon molecules which have gradually leaked up to the surface through cracks in rocks.
Do people really think dinosaurs and trees managed to die only in certain spots and in vast quantities?

Maybe instead of a BDR that just says yes or no to whether you are allowed to buy alcohol, use the technology in a different way.
You show ID already with the BDR, but change it so it records when, where, what and how much is being purchased. From this the authorities could use the info to track down who is buying grog for others, and also track some grog runners. Just a suggestion.
