Fuel Saving Tips

Ethanol is not always bad

Ethanol is a mixture of Gasoline and Alcohol. Usually it's called E10, E20 and E85, meaning 10%, 20% or 85% ethanol. If your car or motorcycle engine is designed to run on Ethanol, it's perfectly fine and the mileage will be nearly the same. There is maybe 1-2% decrease in milleage for E10-E20. Another thing to consider is that Ethanol releases less polutants and has a slightly higher combustion rate, which provides more power to the engine. If your car was not designed to run on Ethanol, you will sufer performance and may damage your engine and ruber cables.
