    Though it’s true that anything that grows can be used, I was not able to find any instance of anyone trying it with English ivy.

    It’s easier to make a usable biofuel from some plants more than others. Corn is easily made into ethanol because corn’s high sugar and starch content is easier to break down than woodier plants high in cellulose. I would guess that ivy has a fairly high cellulose content.  

    You have the right idea of trying to make fuel out of something we don’t eat or need; there is lots of research going on now trying to find ways to efficiently make biofuels out of non-food crops on land that won’t grow food.
