The continuous development of motorized transportation demands the development of sources of motor fuels to be used in place of those presently produced from crude oil. Such a replacement fuel may be methanol, which, in many aspects, is better than the currently used fuels. The use of methanol as a motor fuel is discussed with respect to: (1) replacing gasoline; (2) faults and disadvantages; (3) use in high compression engines; (4) current production techniques; (5) raw material bases; (6) price forecasting relative to other fuels; and (7) the specific situation of Poland as a producer of methanol.
