Scania introduces first ethanol-powered trucks
What you might find interesting is that Scania's technology makes engines work according to the diesel principle (compression-ignition). This allow the engines to be as efficient as diesel units. Scania's ethanol contains 5-7 percent special additives that improve ignition and lubrication. Most current flex-fuel engines compatible with ethanol use the otto cycle with lower efficiency. Current ethanol-powered buses by Scania are already running in countries such as Norway, Spain, Italy, Poland, United Kingdom, China, Australia and Brazil.
