Skycar maker likes ethanol

Remember the Skycar (pictured)? Well, its maker, Moller International, Inc., finds ethanol to be a perfect fuel for its Rotapower(R) rotary engine line. The company had tested the engine using gasoline, diesel, natural gas, and alcohol and found it ran best using ethanol. States founder Paul Moller, "It runs so clean that when we disassemble and inspect the engine after a test it is spotless inside ... virtually like new." The company recommends its rotary engines, which are being considered for applications such as electric generators, RVs, scooters, to hybrid vehicles, all use ethanol.
