Atlanta has some alcohol dispensing gas stations but not nearly as many as we should. Using alcohol instead of gasoline will help tremendously with metro Atlanta’s air quality and lessen the impact that air pollution has on our health!
David Blume is a firm believer in the virtues of using alcohol to solve global energy problems. His very worthy website alcoholcanbeagas.com educates us on the fact that sustainable, clean-burning and efficient ethanol alcohol can virtually replace all forms of energy that are more harmful than beneficial such as petroleum based products, nuclear energy, and kerosene. In fact you can even produce electricity cost-effectively by using alcohol!
Blume challenges people to “put a gallon of alcohol in your tank.” He says you can safely use at least 50 percent of alcohol in your gas tank without any problems. You end up with more horsepower, even if you get a little lower mileage but alcohol is cheaper than gas, so it shouldn’t really matter.
Blume advises that alcohol is kinder to your fuel tank as you won’t have carbon build up in your engine, which is what cuts the life and performance of your car.
Alcohol is much safer than using kerosene which can be polluting and harmful to breath, causing health problems in unventilated areas where cooking takes place.
Many people have to walk for miles to find wood as well as deforestation taking place for fueling purposes – alcohol can efficiently replace wood as a fuel source.
One can produce alcohol for less than $1 a gallon, using a wide variety of plants and waste products including algae to stale donuts, says Blume.
In places like Brazil, alcohol is offered at fuel pumps alongside gasoline and with the alcohol being cheaper, people are probably reaching for the latter!
How about it Atlanta, let’s feature more alcohol at our gas pumps and phase out gasoline altogether…
