Ethanol Boosted Direct Injection Engine (EBDI) cre

Many are aware of that. However, there are also many who understand that emissions from burning high amounts of ethanol compared to gasoline is drastically cleaner and extremley much less harmful. Many have also figured out and care that using ethanol does not add to our trade deficet. The money spent stays in this country. Regarding the 3+ mpg loss, there has been a solution to that for quite a few years. Ricardo Engineering designed and created an engine, a V-6 3 or 4L that is twin turbo charged and exceeds both horsepower and torque using E85 and above. It will also burn straight gasoline but has a mpg and performance loss that is conversely significant to using E85 in an engine tuned only for gasoline. Engine availability is around the corner from GM. Ford also has a similar engine that likey could do and perform the same way if their engineering and marketing dept made it available.

Why do people not know that you lose about 3+ mpg with ethanol and that means more fossil fuel to produce more ethanol??
