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.
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.
