  1. I saw that headline posted in bold letters on the front news. I know it is a needed thing, very needed and I want alternatives.
  2. Whats straight gas lol well not in Mo anymore and I feel good about that.
  3. AUDIOGURU Of course each vehicle is different but I am up to 60% with no problems. You did great if your vehcile is humming along keep it there for maybe a month. Let her get used to it, then start adding a few gallons at a time. When I read there are those that have used 50/50 mix for 7 yrs I get a little excited lol. We are on the cutting edge here and like backyard mechanics of the golden years.
  4. The only thing I would be concerned about would be the fuel filter. With that many miles who know what deposits my come loose. Just start out slow and go from there.
  5. bowlerman Here is how my story goes. I run a 2005 Pt Cruiser only 25k on when purchased. I started with 20% E-85 and then after a month went to 30%. After about 3 more months I went up to 40% and am now at 60%. The idea is start slow so your car and the Ecu doesn't get fouled up. I have had 0 issues doing it this way. I hope this helps you in your venture to use ethanol.

  7. http://news.yahoo.com/s/ap/20080226/ap_on_re_us/ethanol_fires;_ylt=Am1.8pmvw2KUDif7LPfb5Sus0NUE Good read and this one is one to think about.
  8. Yeah thats why I never let it idle lol. Well hardly ever unless I have to defrost the windows.
  9. My experience was to start slow, like 20% and then moved to 30%. As the months went by I bumped it up 10% per until I reached 60% and it still runs great no issues at all.
  10. Engineers from Purdue University have developed a technique for producing hydrogen at a cost that would be competitive with other energy technologies. http://www.peakoil.com/modules.php?name=News&file=article&sid=36028
  11. Check this out great story for promoting E-85 http://www.matternetwork.com/2008/2/ethanol-success-comes-down-location.cfm
  12. Why do we have to wait that long? There is a lot of negative news every time you turn around. It is going to take word of mouth by those that use a blend for it to work. People are so afraid to try it and have heard about every negative thing you can think of.
  13. The anti faction is going to pick this story and run with it. http://news.yahoo.com/s/ap/20080222/ap_on_bi_ge/farm_scene_biodiesel_businesses;_ylt=Aq_IIkvqi4IeKTXFwcX6TjOs0NUE
  14. Dragonwhip yeah that article got my blood boiling big time. The majority of Americans believe this garbage cause its shoved down there throat about each day. To add to the fire then they get on posting boards and repost the slanted garbage, and even if someone has no clue they read it and believe it. You know its sort of depressing reading all the crap out there.
  15. Yup nothing but propaganda and we keep seeing it each and every day.
  16. I would love ethanol just in my home town, as of now I have to drive 60 miles to get and the grand kids.
  17. Yw there cessna he had more to say but in a nutshell he pretty much shot down the panel that was drilling him on it.
  18. This morning on cnbc news states "We need more ethanol in the USA, were sending half a trillion overseas every year" Now it must be serious if oilman himself says it right.
  19. Quote But he also said that E85 isn't for all cars, only those marked as "Flex Fuel" vehicles, or that say they accept E85 in the vehicle manual. No one here or anywhere else that I know of has experienced any problems running E-85
  20. Dan I agree with you 100% ethanol better not blow it.
  21. Check this out now I know it takes power but this would be something if they could ever pull it off. http://www.burnertrouble.com/oil-and-energy/los-alamos-scientists-propose-turning-co2-into-gasoline/
  22. Did I start something here, I hope so maybe a conversation lol. At least it is something to think about I just want it out there for others to try like I have been able to.
  23. AE Biofuels has announced that it has begun construction of an integrated cellulose and starch ethanol commercial demonstration facility in Butte, Montana. http://www.energy-daily.com/reports/AE_Biofuels_Builds_Integrated_Cellulose_Ethanol_Commercial_Demonstration_Plant_999.html
  24. Magellan Midstream Partners and Buckeye Partners have announced they have begun a joint assessment to determine the feasibility of constructing a dedicated ethanol pipeline. Not sure how big this could be but it might shut up the big mouth anti group. http://www.energy-daily.com/reports/Assessing_The_Feasability_Of_A_Dedicated_Ethanol_Pipeline_999.html
