Which is better for your car?
What is gasoline?
Gasoline is a fuel that is used in the car to generate electricity and heat.
Ethanol is a non-methanol fuel that produces more CO2 per unit of fuel.
How much CO2 is produced in a gallon of gasoline?
Ethanol produces approximately 1.5 grams of CO2, or about 0.5 percent of the total CO2 emitted by the human body.
How much CO 2 is produced by burning fossil fuels?
The energy released from burning fossil fuel is referred to as the “carbon intensity” of the fuel.
The most widely used fuels are coal, natural gas, and petroleum.
Ethyl-alcohol, a form of ethanol that is derived from corn, is also an example of a noncarbon fuel.
The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency defines ethanol as a “methane-based fuel.”
How does ethanol differ from gasoline?
In the United States, the fuel ethanol is derived is from corn and the corn product is called corn ethanol.
Ethylene is an ethanol compound that gives it a brownish color and is used as an additive to gasoline and diesel fuel.
Ethanes are typically found in diesel fuel, and many other industrial products.
How many gallons of gasoline can I burn per day?
Ethyl alcohol can burn as much as 8.6 gallons per day, or 9.2 gallons per week.
How do I find out how much gasoline I can burn?
Ethylene-alcohol is a “gasoline-like” fuel, which means that it produces less CO2 than gasoline.
You can find out the CO2 content of the gas you are buying at the pump.
If you want to compare fuel grades, you can compare your gasoline tank to the gas tank in your car.
Ethane-alcohol gasoline is less expensive than gasoline with the same fuel quality and cost.
If the gas has a high octane rating, you might want to use the high octanol fuel.
