FLEET EXPERIENCE USING THREE BLENDS OF ETHANOL AND UNLEADED GASOLINE
The Savannah River Plant, which is operated by Du Pont for the Department of Energy, has successfully operated automotive and nonautomotive gasoline-powered equipment on three different blends of ethanol and unleaded gasoline. The conventional gasohol blend of 10% ethanol and 90% unleaded gasoline (10/90) has been used in addition to 15/85 and 20/80 blends. By October 1980, close to ten million miles will have been driven and almost one million gallons of gasohol consumed.
