    Making ethanol for car

    I am closing in this month on paying off my SUV, and want to sell it for an alternative fuel vehicle. I need something that is self-sufficient.

    I am leaning towards buying a flex fuel car, making my own ethanol with a still, and eventually converting the car to run on 100% ethanol.

    I wanted to post here to see if anyone here has been down this road, or has alternative suggestions?

    If you had the time and were mechanically minded a GEET retrofit would be cool. Then you can run your car on Mountain Dew but that's probably more expensive that gasoline these days . My nephew is great mechanic so one day perhaps I will coax him in to building one.

    It can run on other fuels and apparently water, the newsreel below is a bit silly about the Mountain Dew.

    Whatever you decide, putting hydroxy gas in with the fuel should improve mpg:

    volkswagons TDI euro hybrid car gets 300 mpg.... they wont let it into the u.s. though. check out george wisemans hyco 2A www.eagle-research.com is the website I think. a fully electric Nissan leaf would be cool also. you could spend your car payment on panels for the house then use it to charge your car.

    and do your own conversion, they do motor mods and bell housings for conversions. use sevcon for your controller http://www.sevcon.com/

    The thing that is steering me away from the Nissan Leaf are the Lithium batteries. If I buy an EV, I want to be able to use Bedini tech to charge it up...to keep the batteries in shape.

    Exactly...I can't find an EV that uses lead acid that would be suitable for the distances I need to drive...

    I either need to go with ethanol or biodiesel as my fuel source...and it appears that ethanol is much easier to produce at home.

    The challenge now is to find either an older (1980's) vehicle that I can convert easily to run on e100...or buy a used e85 car and figure out how to update some parts and the computer to run on e100.

    I like the older vehicle situation a bit better as they still run if there is an EMP blast...not completely dependent on electronics.

    I don't think the EV cares whether the batteries are Lead or Li. The latter are preferred because their capacity is very much higher for their weight and volume.

    The reality is that you would need one heck of a Bedini to supply the energy at the rate you are going to need it, even bearing in mind that when you stop for something to eat, the Bedini will be left running. I doubt that the SG would be suitable; you are looking at a Watson variation of the Bedini, as per the 1984 "Free Energy Generator" document.
