How does ethanol produce energy?





Question: How does ethanol produce energy?

Answer: Ethanol is used as a fuel in the same way that gasoline is, via the internal combustion engine. It can be used in engines designed specifically for 100% Ethanol fuel but this is rare. More often Ethanol is used as a fuel additive to gasoline which offsets the amount of oil required to produce a given volume of fuel for gasoline powered vehicles. Also as with anything that is combustible it can be used to produce heat or light for various purposes.
