Am I missing something?  This recipe is horrible for efficiency!  It's on the order of 3x expensive for a 50% output increase.

And since it requires the same source as the main recipe as well (oil), it's kinda pointless.

Base recipe needs 12 oil to get 9 plastic.

The alternate requires 16 oil to get the same 9 plastic, two refineries and an assembler.

An alternate recipe should be a pretty solid departure from the base recipe.  Maybe an alternate plastic from Limestone+Coal or something similar?  (5 Limestone + 3 coal = 4 plastic @ 30/m for example.

Anything made from plastic should technically be able to go back to being plastic, but obviously at a loss of material for the processing. I don't mind the ability to recycle mixed materials, but the formula should be semi-realistic. Coal works as an alternative but other non-oil resources don't seem logical. Biomass could also work.

I believe this recipe is quick to produce though, which offsets the cost.Still not good for much currently

I find Oil to be in demand so using more oil for the same results is a bad alternative.  Makes this not useful and a waste of a hard drive.  Surprised no one up votes this.
