An environmentally friendly fuel, ethanol comes from sugar cane, which helps reduce carbon dioxide in the atmosphere through photosynthesis in sugarcane plantations. Based on specific recommendations, this fuel can be blended in with diesel and gasoline.
You may not know this, but the ethanol you fill your tank up with is different from the one that is added to gasoline. The fuel that supplies ethanol-fired or flexfuel vehicles is hydrated ethylic alcohol, characterized for being limpid and colorless. The product that is added to gasoline, meanwhile, is anhydrous ethylic alcohol, which also receives an orange dye.
