Question: What can be run off of ethanol fuel?
Answer:Engines have been made that run on the combustion of ethanol as its fuel source. Some of the limitations of ethanol fuel is that is less energy efficient, meaning it takes more fuel to do the same distance, and the engine can have trouble starting at low temperatures because of ethanol’s combustion properties. To avoid these negative properties of ethanol as a fuel source, a blend of gasoline and ethanol is often used which wont be as impacted by these issues. The benefits of ethanol are in its production. It can be produced locally from plants we are able to re-plant while gasoline, which is more energy dense, was made through long term geologic processes we don’t know how to reproduce.
