E85 requires vehicles be designed or specially outfitted to handle fuel with such ethanol concentration. When the price for oil was above $ a barrel, high ethanol fuel cost considerably less per gallon than gasoline, and while the fuel efficiency of E85 is usually lower than gasoline, overall it cost less to drive on E85 than gasoline during.
Ethanol Fuel: Selected full-text books and articles Corn Ethanol: Setting Straight a Misguided Attempt to Free the United States from Foreign Oil By Kurz, Natalie Jean Houston Journal of International Law, Vol. 31, No. 2, Spring Ethanol is one of the largest volume organic chemicals used in industrial and consumer products. The primary industrial uses of this aliphatic alcohol are as an intermediate in the production of other chemicals and as a solvent. Ethanol is used in the manufacture of .
Ethanol’s high octane value and green advantages have also led ethanol to the world of motorsports. The cars in the Indy ran on E85 while from , NASCAR’s top three national series raced with Sunoco Green E15, which contains 15% ethanol. As at November , over five million miles have been driven using Sunoco Green E Capital cost of about million US$ for a base case design to produce million liters of ethanol per year from 2, t DM /d of corn stover costing US$/t DM with a yield of l of ethanol/dry metric ton has been calculated. Just over half of this capital cost .

"March " "SAE/SP/"--Title page verso. "SAE World Congress, Detroit, Michigan, USA, March"--Page 4 of cover. Description: pages: illustrations ; 28 cm: Other Titles: Ethanol vehicle challenge. The Ethanol Vehicle Challenge () was developed to demonstrate the potential of ethanol to significantly lower emissions, improve performance, increase fuel efficiency, and improve cold starting of vehicles.
During the two years of the competition the platform changed – from a 5-passenger sedan (Chevrolet Malibu) to a full-size truck (Chevrolet Silverado) – to reflect consumer Views: and extended the incentive to “President Clinton and I will strongly and actively oppose any effort to eliminate the ethanol program.
We challenge Congress to do what is right for our farmers, our rural communities, our environment, and our national security.” —Vice President Al Gore, Ap The Ethanol Vehicle Challenge provided up to 16 universities in North America the opportunity to convert both Chevrolet Malibus and full-size pickup trucks to run on E85 (85% corn-based ethanol + 15% gasoline).
The results from the three-year competition showed that ethanol could perform as well, or even better, than gasoline vehicles. Ethanol's flammability in air is also much lower than that of gasoline, which reduces the number and severity of vehicle fires. Anhydrous ethanol has lower and higher heating values of and megajoules (MJ)/liter, respectively; for gasoline the values are and MJ/liter.
A team of eight engineering students at the University of California, Riverside will compete May in the Ethanol Vehicle Challengea North American collegiate competition to convert gasoline-powered pickups to run on a cleaner burning ethanol-gasoline blend. The contest will be held at various locations in Canada.
A 2000 Ethanol Vehicle Challenge book team from Minnesota State University's Automotive Engineering Technology program entered the Ethanol Vehicle Challenge. A Chevrolet Silverado was converted to run on E85 (85% ethanol, 15% gasoline).
The competition consisted of emission, fuel. Purchase Ethanol - 1st Edition. Print Book & E-Book. ISBNEthanol fuel is ethyl alcohol, the same type of alcohol found in alcoholic beverages, used as is most often used as a motor fuel, mainly as a biofuel additive for first production car running entirely on ethanol was the Fiatintroduced in in Brazil by l is commonly made from biomass such as corn or sugarcane.
In Sweden ethanol is used in the diesel combustion process in Scania’s ethanol engine by using ignition improver and lubricity additive. The first ethanol bus equipped with Scania’s engine started service inand in there were buses running in Sweden.
Now more than buses have been supplied by Scania. A flexible-fuel vehicle (FFV) or dual-fuel vehicle (colloquially called a flex-fuel vehicle) is an alternative fuel vehicle with an internal combustion engine designed to run on more than one fuel, usually gasoline blended with either ethanol or methanol fuel, and both fuels are stored in the same common flex-fuel engines are capable of burning any proportion of the resulting blend.
The Energy Information Agency () describes the history of ethanol. Ethanol’s first use was to power an engine inand inNicolaus Otto, the inventor of the modern four-cycle internal combustion engine, used ethanol to power an early engine.
The EPA approved an increase in the percentage of Ethanol to 15% and approved usage in and newer vehicles. E15 is the most tested gasoline blend on the market.
E The EPA act of designated an increase to 85% Ethanol and 15% Regular Unleaded gasoline as an Alternative Fuel and provided incentives for auto manufacturers. E15 was approved for use in model year and newer cars, light-duty trucks, medium-duty passenger vehicles (SUVs), and all flex-fuel vehicles (FFVs) by the U.S.
Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) in In fact, 9 out of 10 of the cars, trucks and SUVs on the road today are approved by their manufacturer to run on E Together these vehicles consume 97% of the unleaded fuel sold in. Ethanol is therefore blended with petrol – usually 85% ethanol to 15% petrol, or E85 – to produce the most common biofuel in the States.
The highest percentage of ethanol fuel sold in the US is E85, but in sunny Brazil it is E95 – starting the car in cold weather being less of an issue.
Flex Fuel vehicles have yellow petrol caps in the US. The fleet of flexible-fuel vehicles in the United States is the second largest in the world after Brazil, and there were more than 21 million 85 flex-fuel vehicles registered in the country by the end of Despite the growing fleet of E85 flex-fuel vehicles, actual use of ethanol fuel is limited due to the lack of E85 refueling infrastructure and also because many American flex-fuel car.
Sincemany automakers have produced flex-fuel vehicles (FFVs) that can run on gasoline without ethanol, E85 (85 percent ethanol, 15 percent gasoline), or any combination of the two. There are now more than 20 million FFVs on the road and they are produced. Ethanol contains % oxygen by weight, and adding oxygen to fuel results in more complete fuel combustion, and therefore contributes to a reduction in exhaust emission and petroleum use (Huang et al., ; Prasad et al., b).
Ethanol is a high octane fuel and its use displaces toxic octane boosters such as benzene, a carcinogen. COVID Resources.

This column appears in the April issue of EPM.With flex-fuel cars that can run on E85 ethanol still a minority of the vehicles on sale, you might think ethanol isn't as important as some other future fuels. But up to 10 percent of every.Four samples of three different types of gasoline found in Brazil were tested to verify their aging effects on engine performance and exhaust emissions: two samples of regular gasoline, one sample of regular gasoline plus additives, and one sample of premium gasoline.
