Assessment Topic

This report discusses aspects of ethanol use as a motor vehicle fuel at high concentrations (e.g. 85%-100%) in place of gasoline. Lower level ethanol mixtures (10% ethanol and 90% gasoline) are already widely used. In fact, about 7.5% of gasoline sold in the United States currently contains ethanol at this level. This represents an annual ethanol production of 840 million gallons.
