Ethanol Fuel Growing in Importance

February 07, 2006

SAN LUIS OBISPO, CA – Ethanol motor fuel is picking up momentum and could be on its way to becoming a successful alternative fuel for vehicles that run on gasoline, according to the editors of the Green Car Journal. In recent years, more than 4 million conventional vehicles have been sold that can operate on any combination of gasoline or E-85 ethanol in the same tank. A total of 21 sedan, pickup, and SUV models from DaimlerChrysler, Ford, and GM are available with flexible-fuel capability or can be ordered that way in many states, according to Market Wire. Both Ford and GM are now partnering with agricultural interests, ethanol producers, and government agencies to expand the fueling infrastructure and educate drivers about using this fuel. Green Car Journal, an award-winning auto enthusiast magazine that focuses on the intersection of autos, energy, and the environment, will preview ethanol in its upcoming spring 2006 issue.
