Latest Data on Fuel Mileage and GHG Benefits of E30

Submitted by on July 6, 2013 – 3:58 pmNo Comment

by Robert Kozak (Advanced Biofuels USA)  As part of Ford Motor Company’s comments submitted to the Environmental Protection Agency docket on proposed Tier 3 regulations regarding higher octane higher ethanol fuels, they provided an up-to-date literature review of the benefits of high octane high ethanol fuels.  We highly recommend it.

We think the paper convincingly shows that the higher octane and improved fuel vaporization of E30 will enable the new generation of Ecoboost and similar engines to deliver the maximum fuel efficiency and greenhouse gas reductions needed to meet the 2017 and 2022 fuel economy standards (CAFE).

Since this appendix is highly technical, we have also attached a paper written for non-automotive engineers that will help explain the concepts behind the technical findings.   READ MORE   Download Ford Motor Company Appendix A Literature Review   Download Advanced Biofuels USA background paper
