Converting your Car to Ethanol

After a friend bragged about his neighbor converting his car to run on Ethanol for around $100, I figured I better investigate. While it Ethanol is on its way, my conclusion was that it isn’t time to go out and mod the Subaru and risk ruining the engine just yet.

The city of Portland, Oregon will require E85 and biodiesel at all gas pumps instead of their petroleum equivalents by 2009. Details of how this will work for individual vehicle owners while maintaining automobile manufacturer warranties, despite exceeding the manufacturer’s maximum warranted operation percentage of 10% of ethanol in fuel, are still being worked as of late-2005.

  1. Once we began driving our electric vehicles around town, our friends and neighbors started showing up asking questions. They wanted us to show them how they could convert their own cars to electric.?So we sat down and wrote up all the things we had learned, creating a step-by-step set of plans that we could give out.

    Within months, we started getting requests from people we didn’t even know. That’s what led us to create this website, so we could offer our knowledge to anyone interested in converting their own car to electric.
