You are also going to spend more money on E-85 than gas. E-85 BTU rating is 85,000 compared to 129,000 for gas.rocconi said:" but I will be doing my part for the enviroment."
Don't let the politicians give you a warm and fuzzy feeling about ethanol. It takes 9 calories of oil and gas to produce 10 calories of ethanol. Since the is a MOST optimistic estimate of the production efficiency there really could be an energy loss in the process. Also, the runoff from corn fields is much greater than most other crops and corn uses a LOT of water. Thus, there is a lot of erosion and loss of top soil. If you think that running out of oil is bad try running out of top soil. If you really want to save oil by using corn I suggest that you use it to heat your house instead of oil.
You'd get betterresults with CNG or propane.hyundaiturbo14b said:ya but it is different but maybe your right I just been getting cought up in this whole green stuff and I thought I might try something diffrent... well see when I finish I should be done toward the end of january.
