Compare 2011 Ethanol Vehicles on the Market

 

 

2006 Ford escape HybridE85 (85% ethanol, 15% gasoline) is considered an alternative fuel under the Energy Policy Act of 1992. It is used to fuel E85-capable flexible fuel vehicles (FFVs), which are available in a variety of models from U.S. and foreign automakers.

Ethanol is an alcohol-based fuel made by fermenting and distilling starch crops, such as corn. It can also be made from "cellulosic biomass" such as trees and grasses. The use of ethanol can reduce our dependence upon foreign oil and reduce greenhouse gas emissions.

 The 15% gasoline content in E85 enables FFVs to operate normally under cold conditions; fueling a vehicle with pure ethanol (E100) creates problems during cold-weather operation. Ethanol can also be mixed with gasoline in lower-level blends, which provide many benefits but are not considered EPAct alternative fuels.

Advantages & Disadvantages of E85

Advantages

Disadvantages

  • Domestically produced, reducing use of imported petroleum

  • Lower emissions of air pollutants

  • More resistant to engine knock

  • Added vehicle cost is very small

  • Can only be used in flex-fuel vehicles

  • Lower energy content, resulting in fewer miles per gallon

  • Limited availability

  • Currently expensive to produce

Ethanol Vehicles, except for a few engine and fuel system modifications, they are identical to gasoline-only models. Other than lower gas mileage, motorists will see little difference when using E85 versus gasoline. E85 has about 27% less energy per gallon than gasoline. However, E85 is typically priced lower than gasoline, so that cost per mile is comparable

As of July, 2009, more than 1,950 U.S. fueling stations offered E85 to the more than 7 million FFVs on U.S. roadways. Stations are more common in the corn belt (Minnesota, Iowa, Illinois) but are spreading throughout the country. In fact, E85 is now offered in more than 40 states.

E85 typically costs less than gasoline on a gallon-for-gallon basis but more than gasoline on an energy-equivalent basis.
