Groundbreaking Study Finds that Certain Ethanol Blends can Provide Better Fuel Economy than Gasoline

Researchers from the University of North Dakota Energy & Environmental Research Center (EERC) and the Minnesota Center for Automotive Research (MnCAR) conducted the testing on four automobiles using the Highway Fuel Economy Test (HWFET), a test developed by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency to determine fuel economy...click here to learn more about the study's results and the surprising fuel economy gained by certain blends of ethanol-to-gasoline (E20 & E30 blends being the best fuel economy mix).

Ethanol Blender Pumps - with the results of the Optimal Ethanol blend-level investigation pointing to higher mileage results for non-flex-fuel (and flex-fuel) vehicles, there will be a push hopefully in the near future to have more service stations upgraded to include ethanol blender pumps. Ethanol blender pumps are already showing up in towns around the U.S. Britton, South Dakota has a service station with an ethanol blender pump that dispenses mid-range ethanol blends - from E-10 to E-85, including E-20, E-30 and E-40 blends.

During the test noted above, it was found that the non-flex-fuel vehicles (97% of the millions of U.S. vehicles on the road today) had no engine faults or other problems until the higher blends were reached. E-40 appears to be the peak of optimum fuel efficiency. For more details on the report be sure to click on the links above...

Ethanol blender pumps allow station owners to install the blender pumps along with an ethanol E-85 tank and their normal gasoline tank, and via the blender pump provide their customers with the desired blend of E-10, E-20, E-30, E-40, and the already popular E-85 blend (for use in flex-fuel vehicles). Congress needs to help with the effort by passing legislation that removes the E-10 barrier and opening up the ethanol choices to consumers for use in their vehicles they own, TODAY!

News of interest for the National Ethanol Vehicle Coalition (NEVC): Senator Joseph Lieberman is a cosigner of a letter focused on helping secure "...$8 million of additional Clean Cities program funding that can be directed to the National Ethanol Vehicle Coalition to expand E85 fueling capacity across the country in the fiscal year 2007 Energy and Water Appropriations bill."

Ethanol Fact Book

(2007 version; opens as a .pdf)

The Ethanol Fact Book is available on Ethanol.org and it is distributed through the Ethanol Across America campaign...

...As note in the October issue of EthanolToday, "the Ethanol Fact Book addresses issues regarding the ethanol tax incentive, energy security and oil import reductions, economic impacts and benefits to the U.S. Treasury, greenhouse gas reduction and environmental benefits, and advancements in cellulose conversion technologies." The article went on to quote Doug Durante, Executive Director of the Clean Fuels Development Coalition (CFDC), "Ethanol is a complex and multi-faceted issue that needs to be viewed in its entirety. Its value is truly the sum of its parts, and this fact book clearly defines the energy security, economic, environmental, and national benefits derived from our ethanol industry."

Be sure to download your free copy of the Ethanol Fact Book today!

A Global, Technical, Marketing and Investment Assessment


COMMENTARY:
Here's a link to interesting figures on
gasoline & gasohol consumption in the U.S., state by state, month-by-month for all of 2005....139 billion gallons worth!

A recent comment by the head of the oil and gas lobby association, American Petroleum Institute (API), President Red Cavaney took issue with the national promotion and the long term use of 85% ethanol (E85) at the Advancing Renewable Energy: An American Rural Renaissance conference in St. Louis.

...You'll see where the estimated 100 Million gallons of Ethanol for the entire year of 2006 pales dramatically when compared to the 858 Million gallons PER DAY of petroleum that we consume in the U.S.
