For the last century it has been impossible to find reliable information on alcohol fuel production and use. Oil companies have continuously suppressed data on Henry Ford's favorite auto fuel. For example, by the late 80s, over 90% of the cars in Brazil ran on straight alcohol; any gasoline vehicle and most diesel engines can be inexpensively converted to run on straight alcohol; millions of Flexible Fuel vehicles and even many cars can run on alcohol or gasoline unmodified-but most vehicle owners don't know it. Alcohol Can Be a Gas reveals this hidden history. The only comprehensive manual on alcohol fuel production ever written, it describes: The small-scale production of 40-cent per gallon alcohol fuel from a wide variety of energy crops or waste, producing profitable by-products for humans or animal feed
How to form driver-owned cooperatives that get up to 61 cents per gallon tax credit for every gallon burned, and Community Supported Energy integrated farms
Distillery and plant design, vehicle engine conversion, furnaces, and even how to cook with your own fuel. Detailing the numerous advantages of alcohol fuel-renewable, safe, terror-secure, ecologically-sound, cheap, triggers tax benefits, triples engine life, and reduces emissions up to 99 percent-this book aims to fuel a revolution. David Blume is President of the International Institute for Ecological Agriculture. Founder of the American Homegrown Fuel Co. Inc. during the late '70s, he produced and hosted a ten-part series for PBS television, through which he taught thousands of farmers and others how to make and use alcohol fuel.
