    Default Bioethanol

    Someone told me "you can mix petrol with bioethanol" !
    Or what should I change to run my engine on that crazy fuel?

    Bioethanol can be mixed with petrol.


    There is a drive to increase ethanol in petrol we buy. In US (for example) a lot of petrol at the forecourt already has a small amount of ethanol mixed in. Some parts of Europe have it too.

    I recently saw that E85 (ie 85% Ethanol and 15% gasoline) is available in some parts of UK for specially modified cars. http://news.bbc.co.uk/1/hi/business/4808244.stm


    I do not know what concentrations of bioethanol a standard car can tolerate before issues arise (these would be specific to each engine type and family), but 5% bioethanol is fairly common and allowed by EN 228.
