Why you should convert your vehicle to flex fuel

    Dear Everyone,
    as you know the price of the Oil is more and more increasing, while
    the oil supply is decreasing. Moreover Oil
    is causing wars, terror, oil spills and a lot of greenhouse gases.
    By upgrading your car to flex fuel, you will continue to be able to
    use oil. However you will also have the
    opportunity to use E85, that means more freedom of choice. The
    conversion cost is about 200-250 USD.
    By choosing ethanol, you choose local fuel production, which means
    labour for farmers, labour for enginneers
    and workers in the ethanol plant, labour for transportation. Moreover
    you also help for indirect labour. Since
    the money stays in your country, this money will turn and produce
    indirect labour. Since the farmer will gain
    your additional fuel money, he will buy other things (labour is again
    needed for their production), which in case
    of oil the oil-Sheikhs or their people would do.
    That ethanol production increases the food prices is also not totally
    right, first there is a by-product called
    "distillers dried grains with solubles", which is used as feed for
    livestock, that is also nothing else than
    food. Moreover, by using ethanol, you put pressure on oil prices,
    which has also an important effect on food
    prices. You also give your money for more research (again labour),
    which will yield in higher efficiency of
    production and alternative production methods like cellulosic ethanol,
    which will change the whole equation.
    Again in case of oil this money would be spent for oil rigs, oil-
    infrastructure, but also for weapons to
    defend the oil.
    By using ethanol, you produce less CO2, since it is produced by corn,
    which actually consumed the CO2 in the air
    for its growing. The more people use ethanol, the higher the
    efficiencies will come for production (similar to
    solar cells). The prices will go further down, and much less CO2 will
    be produced during production in the plant.
    Do you know that the production efficiencies already improved 30% ?*
    Another reason for using ethanol is that oil prices will come up
    again, when the barrel price of 150 USD is back
    you will be very happy to have your vehicle converted. The conversion
    also increases the value of your vehicle.

    Yours sincerely.
