Can a 1997 lanos use ethanol fuel?
ethanol fuel is use for gasoline if we didnt have ethanol there would be no cars or just no gasoline
While diesel engines do use fuel with the highest percentage of ethanol (Grain alcohol), they do not use 100% ethanol.
if it is a petrol (gasoline) engine, the answer is yes. I am running my 4.6L V8 on 50% ethanol, with no engine or injection modification, no difference in starting, power and fuel economy. On the long run, if you use more than 50% it may damage rubber in the fuel pump and seals. After you start using ethanol, change the fuel filter as etahnol will clean and detach all previous residues in the tank… Read More
You don't if the vehicle was designed as a flex fuel vehicle. It can safely burn E85 ethanol. You can burn a mixture of 10% Ethanol in any vehicle.
Brazil is the leader using as high as 25% Ethanol+Gasoline mixture... very closely followed by USA.. other countries like China, Australia, Sweden, Colombia use Ethanol as fuel.
You can only use the gas that is blended with ethanol. 90 % gas 10 % ethanol. You can not use the new 85% ethanol 15 % gas; this will eat the seals on your fuel system. I hope this helps you. Mark
The car has to be built to run on ethanol. Ethanol requires different fuel lines, injector sizes, computer programming.
Usually Ethanol or paraffin.
Britain is not a major producer of cotton. Since they cannot produce or import the corn needed to supply ethanol cost effectively, it would not be logical for them to use ethanol to fuel their cars.
Non-Ethanol 87 Octane Regular Unleaded fuel.
What kind of fuel additive should you use for a 1992 Chevrolet work truck when using gasoline with ethanol?
Unless this is a Flex Fuel vehicle you should not use E85 and should use only gasoline with 10% or less Ethanol. There is no additive to help.
It is recommened that you use premium only but you can use any fuel that you want... I wouldn't do anything with ethanol
No, your car will actually use more fuel when run on ethanol or with ethanol added into the gasoline, as ethanol has less energy than gasoline. The reason ethanol is sometimes used is that it causes less pollution as it burns cleaner than gasoline and also can assist gasoline to burn cleaner when used as an additive.
Check to see if there is a label inside your fuel filler door indicating that it is a FFV - flexible fuel vehicle, or check your VIN. If the 8th "character" of the VIN is a "K" , that indicates that you have a FFV engine and can use up to 85 % ethanol (E - 85) Otherwise you use regular unleaded fuel which can contain up to 10 % ethanol as long as it… Read More
Ethanol fuel, a type of biofuel, causes environmental damage. It produces carbon dioxide and water vapour, which are the two major greenhouse gases. Also, the production of ethanol fuel, combustion, gives off carbon dioxide. Growing crops such as corn to produce ethanol fuel has not only reduced food production, but also sparked debates of 'food over fuel'.
Lanos production starts 1997. However, you can use any fluid with DOT 3 or DOT 4 specification. The system filling contains 0.5 liters.
If your 2005 Ford Explorer 4.0 liter V6 is a Flexible Fuel Vehicle ( FFV ) You can tell by opening the gas filler door and there will be a sticker or if you look at the VIN and the 8th " character " is a " K " ( instead of an " E " ) then you have the flexible fuel vehicle version and can use ethanol fuel
I don't believe that NASCAR is using ethanol. I know F1 race cars use it.
Ethanol is a fuel made from plants. When we burn this fuel, it does emit carbon dioxide, but of course this was originally absorbed from the atmosphere by the plants, so there is no net increase in the amount of atmospheric carbon dioxide no matter how much ethanol we use (apart from a small amount produced by generating electricity used in the production of the ethanol). A disadvantage of using ethanol for motor fuel is… Read More
If we're talking about gasoline/petrol, then yes as long as it meets the minimum octane required for your car. If you consider "boat fuel" as ethanol free fuel then yes absolutely you can. Using fuel containing ethanol in boats however creates problems.
the engine in a 84 ford laser is not ethanol compatible & will run like a sack of crap if you use fuel that contains any ethanol
For area that have 10% ethanol in their gas, its best to use 89 octane. There is less ethanol with higher octane. The 87 octane with ethanol really takes a toll on the float seal, just eats it up. Ethanol tends to have a little more water in the fuel over time. I know several people that use 93 or 94 octane for the mowers. That is over kill and 89 will be fine.
Nothing over E15 (15% ethanol) and it should be fine. It could run on E85 (85% ethanol) in an emergency, but it may damage fuel system components.
From what I've heard, if your vehicle was not designed to run on ethanol, don't put it in the tank. Ethanol is a type of alcohol, and will corrode fuel lines, fuel injectors and cause a number of problems. 99, suburban....I'd use regular gas to be safe
Modern engines can run some Ethanol. Modern gasoline engines are now set up to run E10, which is a mixture of 10% ethanol. To use higher percentages like E85, which is 85% Ethanol, engines need appropriate seals, hoses and engine settings (timing, etc.). Vehicles set up to run E85 have been selling for a number of years and are sold as "Flex Fuel" vehicles. Such vehicles have a fuel sensor in the fuel line to… Read More
Theoretically yes because ethanol can be used as a fuel but practically maybe difficult because you will need a lot of it to get enough energy.
Pretty much all countries use ethanol. You see, ethanol is "drinking alcohol" (beer, wine, whiskey, rum, vodka, etc.) Even in so-called "dry" countries, where it is illegal to drink alcohol, there are industrial uses for ethanol. If you are referring, however, to the usage of alcohol as a fuel, I have no idea.
Ethanol has many considerations as far as its use as an automotive fuel.\: # On the plus side it is a liquid and easily handled in the present transportation and delivery systems. # On the negative side: * Ethanol from food crops removes food from the system * It requires more energy to produce ethanol than the automobile gets out of the ethanol (Crops require fertilization and fertilizers are made using hydrocarbons, ethanol is made… Read More
Yes, though high octane regular gas (without ethanol) is recommended. You can use blended ethanol mixtures as long as the ethanol content is no higher than 15%. If you use the blend I recommend adding a stabilizer agent (such as Stabil).
Ethanol is also known as grain alcohol, and is the type of alcohol found in beer, wine, and liquors. The ethanol produced in commercial distilling plants for used in automotive fuel is purposely poisoned with an additive to prevent its theft and use for drinking.
actually you mean ethanol. Ethylene is an ingredient in anti-freeze. Unless the vehicle is specially equipped to be a flex-fuel vehicle, the answer is no. There is no cost benefit to running ethanol anyway. Ethanol is cheaper to buy, but gets significantly less miles per gallon, so you are burning more fuel when you run it.
I have a 1987 Chrysler 5 Ave V8. Every time I use Gas with Ethanol the car stalls or very hard to start, plus my MPG decreases 3 miles per gallon. use No Ethanol fuel and this might help, also check your plugs, cap and roter, timing, you will need to use 2 or 3 tanks of non Ethanol fuel before you see a deference. Wade,
all cars can use e-10 as all gas has 10% ethanol in in now.
The 1994 Subaru Legacy was designed to run on regular unleaded gasoline. It cannot use diesel fuel or biodiesel fuel in its engine !! The most available alternative fuel in the US for gasoline is ethanol. This engine should easily tolerate ethanol up to a 10% ethanol/90% gasoline blend. You should be careful about using ethanol in high concentrations because it can be corrosive to some engine parts. Therefore, you should not use high ethanol… Read More
A bio fuel is either a solid , liquid or gas that is made from recently living material. A bio fuel produces less c02 when burnt then a fossil fuel would. (not so sure on this bit )Some exapmples of bio fuels are ethanol - to make ethanol you can use sugar corn (most vegitation) soy bean
If you have the flex fuel version of the 3.0 litre " Vulcan " V6 engine , you can use E85 ethanol or " regular " unleaded gasoline , 87 octane , or any combination of the 2 fuels To identify if your engine is a flex fuel version ( there will be a sticker inside the fuel filler door and also the 8th " character " of the VIN will be a " K… Read More
Ethanol is a flammable, colourless chemical compound with a slight smell, the best known use of ethanol is in alcoholic drinks used recreationaly. It is a member of a family of organic compounds called alcohols and has the molecular formula CH3CH2OH It is also used in industry as a solvent and can be used in lamps as fuel
Since the gasoline we purchase these days leaves a lot to be desired, I have been recommending high octane fuel to my customers. Also, avoid fuel containing ethanol for use in your outboard.
Try to use the highest octane you can, and try to stay away from ethanol tainted gas, the fuel system is not built to handle it and will develop leaks.
RAV4 vehicles feature off roading, high fuel mileage, and Flex fuel, which allows you to use up to 85% ethanol in them. They also have a spacious interior.
Not at all. Instead, they are being used in car engines as an alternative fuel as it is a green fuel (non - pollutant). But, the drawback is that you may have to change / modify the engine of your car to use this type of green fuel.
No, the fuel lines, o-ring, and injector seals are not compatible with E-85.
The Ford Ranger , 3.0 liter Flex Fuel Vehicle engine is designed to use " regular " unleaded gasoline , 87 octane , or E85 ethanol , or any combination of the 2 fuels
Here in America we use one type of primary fuel and some alternative fuels. Our primary fuel is unleaded gasoline which comes in three octanes which are 87,89,93. I believe I got the octanes correct, but some stations offer a different lineup. One of our alternatives is E85 which is 85 percent ethanol. Ethanol is an alcohol formed from corn.
E85prices.com currently states that E85 is 13.4% of the cost of regular 87 octane gasoline. Flex fuel vehicles typically see fuel consumption increases of around 30%. So, you save about 13% but use 30% more fuel. So, for every $100 you typically spend on gas, you can expect to spend about $144 for ethanol.
Answer 1 Ethanol is said to attack some rubber components such as fuel lines and seals and gaskets. __________________________________________ Answer 2 There are huge variations in what cars can be modified to use ethanol due to the car manufacturer and year the car was made. If car was made after 1985, ethanol should not be as corrosive as for cars made before 1985. Higher concentration (for example E85 or fuel with 85% ethanol) will have… Read More
If you have the FLEXIBLE FUEL VERSION of the 3.0 L V6 engine you can use E 85 or regular unleaded ( 87 octane ) or any combination of the 2 fuels
Ethanol is used for fuel, or other various things. (That is not an answer!) Ethanol is a biofuel. BIOFUELS are widely considered a way to reduce greenhouse gases from fossil fuel use and thereby reduce human-caused global warming. Although ethanol is a common form of alcohol, the largest single use of ethanol is as a motor fuel and fuel additive. Compared to petrol, ethanol cuts poisonous gas emissions (carbon monoxide, nitrous oxides, sulfur dioxide) and… Read More
It really depends on the engine. You shouldn't use ethanol mixed gas in any of them, but really the only one that will give you troubles is the 850. The 850 is very picky about fuel, and poor fuel can make it stumble and not run at all. Run only high-octane, non-ethanol fuel in an 850. The older 500 and 800 engines will run fine on pretty much any pump gas.
The 1998 Lincoln navigator IS NOT a flexible-fuel vehicles (FFV). There are a few major differences between FFVs and non-FFVs. One is the elimination of bare magnesium, aluminum, and rubber parts in the FFV fuel system. Another is that FFV fuel pumps must be capable of operating with electrically conductive ethanol instead of non-conducting dielectric gasoline fuel. FFVs fuel injection control systems have a wider range of pulse widths to inject approximately 40% more fuel… Read More
