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.
