Illinois Testing Ethanol-Diesel

April 17, 2002

Researchers at the University of Illinois are working with an experimental fuel that blends corn-based ethanol with diesel, according to an Associated Press (AP) report.The fuel is called E diesel. It is currently being tested at two farms in the state in the hope it proves to be durable, cost-effective, and more environmentally sensitive than conventional diesel fuel.One of the other long-term goals for the project is to get E diesel onto the market in large quantities, thus expanding the demand for ethanol and providing more revenue for farmers. According to the AP report, initial estimates show that E diesel would be likely to cost between 5 and 15 cents more per gallon than conventional fuel.
