Fleet Experience Using Three Blends of Ethanol and Unleaded Gasoline 801361
The Savannah River Plant, which is operated by the Du Pont Company 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. The plant fleet contains approximately 900 automotive and 250 nonautomotive units. The gasohol program began in July 1979. By October 1980, close to ten million miles will have been driven and almost one million gallons of gasohol consumed.
