Transcript

  • 1. ETHANOL
  • 2.  The United States is a country that’s very heavily dependent on fossil fuel. Contribute more of 25% of the greenhouse gases today. Especially when gas is at $4 a gallon, there has never been any other higher demand for newer more fuel efficient vehicles.
  • 3. Chevrolet promotion of e85 http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=YA6ja6hD8fw &feature=related
  • 4. Credibility?
  • 5. The Process Ethanol fuel or you can say “biomasses of alcohol fuel” are resulting from barley, wheat, corn, etc. (“Enjoying life of Earth Day” Auto Week mag).
  • 6. Interests groups American Lung Association Automotive manufactures Oil companies Farms Etc.
  • 7. Advantages It’s great for the environment. It reduces greenhouse emissions like carbine monoxides and nitrous oxides (Layton). The fuel is slightly cheaper than conventional gasoline. It is great High quality fuel Ethanol fuel can also keep your fuel system clean because it does not leave any varnish or gooey substance behind. Ethanol can also carry out a duty of absorbing moisture in the fuel system

Electric Cars, Hybrid Cars & More | Green Car.N.p., n.d. Web. 10 Nov. 2009.<http://www.greencar.com/articles/corvettes-race-renewable-fuel.php>.
  • 9. What happens if using E85 in avehicle that is not intended?It can lead to corrosion in the fuel system metal parts damage plastics nonmetallic fuel system parts normally used in today’s internal-combustion engine.Note: It’s always a good idea to check the car manual if you’re not sure.
  • 10. Disadvantages E85 gas stations There is less energy in ethanol than there is in gasoline By consuming the amounts of energy from food crops would deplete the amount of land It creates more energy and pollution to produces ethanol fuel. . Technicians always run across replacing injectors and fuel filters on many flex fuel vehicles. Old gunk and residue may clog up your fuel system

  • 12. My View We should not substitute all foods just for energy, because than we have to work harder than we already are. 852 gallons of corn-based fuel = U.S average driver of 10,000 miles a year. Ethanol fuel is great for your motor and the environment, but old gunk and residue may clog up your fuel system. I always recommend my customers to stick with one kind of fuel, try to avoid switching fuel and always use the fuel that vehicle was intended to use.
