Flex Fuel is a mixture of about 85% ethenol and 15% gasoline. You need a 10-55 gallon, ethanol still, empty container for "liquid sunshine" (ethanol), heat producer. Fuel for the fuel is suger, yeast, and heat. basically you put water suger and yeast in a large contaner and then the yeast eats the suger over a couple days and creates E85 into the mixture.
the mixture is distilled(with heat)untill it is clean enough to use as fuel. cellulosic ethonal requires an extra step. you do not need suger,however,because the additional step is to make it out of cellulose. this is a wonderfull mothed because many waste product contain cellulose and can basicly be recycled through the vessel that is home made ethonal.

Why should you use ethanol? You may already be using a mix of ethanol and gasoline in your vehical and not know it. Ethanol is used across the nation in quantities of 5-15 percent to reduce smog forming emissions and greenhouse gasses. In 2004, the use of ethanol in the U.S. reduced greenhouse emissions by about 7 milloin tons according to the D.E.A.N.L. thats the equivelent of removeing the emissions from 1 million vehicals on the road. In addition, ethonal i highly biodegradable,making it safer for the enviorment in the event of a spill into the soil.

The key to produceing large quantites of ethanol lies in starcking with materials that produce it more effciently that corn does now. while produceing ethanol from the corn uses only the starch portion of the kernel, leaveing the protein, and minerals, and nurtrients for use as food for people or live stock, most researchers agree that using non-food resourses,like wood chips,willow trees,grass and corn is a better long term solution.

What vehicles can use it? Most of today's comercially avaible vehicles can run on blends of E10, a mix of 10% ethanol and 90% gasoline, which is mandated in some areas of the countries to act as oxygenate additives to improve air quality. in addition many newer vehicles can use E85, which qualifys as an alternative fuel under the energy policy act of 1992. Vehicles that can run E85 gasoline or any mixture of the two are called flexibe fuel vehicles or (ffv). FFV's are wildy availible and include sedans minivans sport utility vehicles and pickup trucks. More than 5 million ffv's have been sold in the U.S. alone.
