What a blessing it is when ministries come together for a good cause.
This miracle fuel has been known about since the 1940's, but has been suppressed up to recently. Numerous amounts of activists have been fighting the government and oil companies for years to get this fuel to America, especially California, to clean up our well known air pollution problem. Due to the amount of new vehicles that we have each year on the highways, the air quality has been managed at an acceptable rate. Many believe that it is better now than in the 70's. Much of this has been due to many acts and efforts of manufacturers and companies participating with cleaner air policies. However, recently the government has realized that in the future more cars will be driving the streets at a rate of 12% or more annually. Realizing this, the government has offered Auto manufacturers incentives to create vehicles to run off of this alternative fuel. Ford Motor Company has played the biggest part at this time in doing their share to clean up the air with their FFV's (Flexible Fuel Vehicles). All of their 2000 and newer 3.0 liter engine packages are equipped with computer controlled sensors that regulate the air fuel mixture and timing to calibrate the tuning according to how much ethanol is mixed in the tank with gas. According to Ford, 11 to 17% more horsepower is gained just by using 100% of the Alternative Fuel called E85.
E85 stands for 85% Ethanol, 15% unleaded gas. This fuel is used in many countries as the main fuel of the industry. In some countries, all the vehicles run on E85 and the automobile manufacturers for those countries have calibrated the fuel to make 15 to 30% better fuel mileage. Here in America, only some fleets in commercial industrial vehicles have been calibrated for the possible high increase in gas mileage. Currently since 2000, automobile manufacturers have calibrated their engines to have equivalent mileage with up to 17% more horsepower. Due to the fact of the increased horsepower, we believe mileage will suffer some due to the increase of foot response (lead foot syndrome). Right now, there are over 250,000 vehicles in California that are capable of running on this Alternative Fuel, but there are no gas stations selling this fuel at this time in California. Government assisted grants have been offered to any independent gas station owners willing to distribute this Alternative Fuel E85, with minimum requirements. Their concerns are mainly location and proximity of fleets and service vehicles. Tax brakes and incentives are so great, it's hard to believe that the government would offer them as such to Flexible Fuel Vehicle (FFV) owners, dealers and large fleet vehicle companies. Who would ever think that the government would actually assist in paying you to help clean up the air.
A bunch of God's good old boys forever serving him, kicking it at Pomona's last Good Guys ever.
