Re: Could a 3 Cylinder Metro be made to run on Ethanol?

What I'm saying with ethanol is if you made what you needed in your backyard with just a few hours a week work and saved $2-3 a gallon then your doing pretty good for yourself.

I haven't seen anything on adverse effect on greenhouse gasses using it. If someone has a link can you post it. I don't think it's effects on rubber and plastic are relevent anymore. If they are making cars to run on e-85 they are using better materials. Also someone mentioned inefficiency of the burn. I'd like to know more about that as well.

redpepe I have you beat my lot is so small(crowd shouts out how small is it). I buy .5 gallon of gas a year to mow my front,side and back yards. lol
