Transcript of ethinol- E85

ethanol E85 C6H12O6 → 2C2H5OH + 2CO2 ethanol is being used widely for vehicle useage and factories, but is not beneficial. e85 can not be transported through pipelines because the fuel itself will separate. So it has to be shipped and trucked world wide. The ships an trucks transporting the fuel do not run off of e85, whats the point? e85 is prouced mostly in the midwest USA because thats where most of the corn in america is prouced. unless you live in the midwest states e85 is generaly 15-20 cents more expensive because is has to be transported to your location. The average SUV running on flex fuel clocks arround 10.4 mpg. The average SUV running on gasoline gets 13.4. This means the average tank of e85 is about 20$ more then reqular gas and it gets WORSE gas mileage. Since e85 is made mostly from ethanol (85%) and ethanol is made mostly from corn. Most people think its a great thing to use something so prevalent in the midwest United States. Sure it helps the farmers but how does it help the people? People run off of food, not vehicles. And there is no guaranty crop is going to be as good one season then the last. e85 will cause corn shortages and americans use corn for almost everything. Products that use Corn

Yogurts ^where is there room for fuel?^ (A Zillion Uses for Corn) C6H12O6 = 2 C2H5OH + 2 CO2 ^Balanced^ Hydroxyethyl Radical + O2 Reaction reaction it is necissary to balance equations so you know the quantities of reactants or products. A balanced equation assures that the conservation law of matter is obeyed. this research had a negative impact on me, seeing everything we use corn for it does not make sense why we have to use it for fuel as well, and for what? to make the sky blue again? Also seeing how it generaly costs more per gallon, you get worse mpg and its really hard on engines it does not add up. This information relates to the real world in a sense that not all 'green' ideas are good ones. People need to see past the 'green' fashion and acctually know what their pumping into their gas tank.
