Gasohol Offered in Vietnam and I am Jealous!

Gasohol, a mix of gas and ethanol, is being offered to the public in Vietnam.  Ethanol added to gas can be effective and proven safe for most gas vehicles without any modifications.

Of course, you can always make your own ethanol using some yeast, water, and sugar.

When will we get Gasohol in America?  Probably never, gasoline companies make way too much more selling regular gas to us.

The timing could not have been better as far as providing alternative solutions to the oil requirements. We all know for a fact that fuel prices are dipping ($91 and falling the last I heard) but this does not mean that the search for alternative fuel should be stopped. In fact, the more alternative fuel that is available then the better it is for the market. For Vietnam, combining Ethanol and Petrol seems to be working for them as this is being distributed named Gasohol E5 by Hanoi.

    Way to go indeed. There are a lot of things that we can learn from other countries who seem to be doing much more than we are in developing alternative energy sources.

    Hate to break it to you, but most if not all US pumps already have E10 which is 10% Ethanol to 90% Gasoline or even E15 which is 15% Ethanol to 85% Gasoline, infact most of the pumps in the Midwest have E15.

    Vietnam is talking about 5% Ethanol to 95% Gasoline, so be jealous all you want that they’re getting more gasoline than the majority of the US.
