Correction, regular gas or ethanol.

BTW, is ethanol as a car fuel available in the U.S. ???

Anyone else notice the "HIGH-POWER SERIES"? 250hp on a shopping cart like that, jeeze.

Regardless, it's ugly as hell.

Interesting-but I'm experiencing a nightmarish vision of tooling down the road in one of those while a big 18 wheeler closes in-or, worse yet-driving through one of those major highway merges-such as they have in Tennessee-and having tractor trailers on each side of you.  Wow!  Wow!

Actually, in Brazil you have the option of buying "total flex" cars, which run on gasoline and/or ethanol. And they're normal size (like the VW Fox, for example). Not sure how it could be adapted for use in the Northern Hemisphere winter, though....

You can get 95 octane here with 5% bio ethanol. If that is what you're referring to, it should be the same price as regular fuel.

E85 in the USA is still a bit more expensive than regular gas, as I hear it. But that's because it is a raqther new product and so far with limited availability.

In Brazil, Ethanol is cheaper than gas. Even considering the 10% or so mileage penalty, it is still more cost effective. I am not currently in Brazil so I could not tell you how much cheaper (no idea where to look that up on the web), but maybe someone in Brazil could tells us.

Cheers
