Question: What is butanol fuel used for?
Answer: Butanol fuel is used in internal combustion engines similar to gasoline. Butanol is chemically closer to gasoline than ethanol and can even be used in many gasoline engines without modification. Currently there are no vehicles being produced to use 100% butanol fuel. However some companies (such as BP and DuPont) have engaged in joint ventures to produce biobutanol gasoline blends for use in gasoline internal combustion engines.
