corn-based ethanol vs gasoline

Corn Ethanol in Gasoline

The ethanol industry received huge subsidies from taxpayers for producing ethanol that is mixed in automotive gasoline Former Governor Charlie Crist decreed that WE in central Florida had to have gasoline with ethanol which is less fuel efficient runs hotter engines and damages many small two cycle engines (lawnmowers etc ) As a car buff and antique boat buff I will never forgive Crist

The Differences Between Biofuel Fossil Fuel

Ethanol is usually mixed with gasoline to produce a fuel is called E85 which is 85 percent ethanol and 15 percent gasoline A gallon of E85 contains 80 000 BTU of energy compared to the 124 800 BTU from the same amount of gasoline This means 1 56 gallons of E85 would be needed to equal one gallon of regular gasoline Biodiesel produces roughly the same amount of energy as an equal amount of
