E85 Ethanol Does not harm Non-FlexFueled Engines

This is a video of a 2000 Chevy Tahoe which was run almost exclusively on E85 Ethanol for over 100,000 miles. The amazing thing is that this is NOT a Flex Fuel vehicle-it was not Flex Fuel ready from the factory. They probably used an E85 conversion kit, but do not mention this in the video. The Tahoe's engine was taken apart and inspected. The results prove that E85 will not harm a standard engine, fuel pump, fuel lines and other components of the fuel system. The results showed that the engine was in excellent condition. So we highly recommend that everyone use E85 however we do not recommend running a standard vehicle without an E85 converter kit. If you would like to learn more about an E85 converter kit for your vehicle, please visit http://www.change2e85.com.

How to make Alcohol at Home (Ethanol)
REUPLOADED DUE TO SOUND ISSUE. Note: For a sugar wash, you probably don't need to sterilize anything. Just wash it with soap and water. The presence of other microbes can alter the taste if you plan to drink it. This is a very basic way that you can make your own DRINKABLE ethanol at home. The main premise of this video is to show just how simple and easy it is to ferment your own alcohol. In a future video, I will try to dispel some myths regarding homebrewing, such as the exaggerated risk of methanol poisoning. I will also demonstrate how easy and safe it can be to distill your own ethanol from the wash that you produce. In this video, I prepare a sugar wash (fermentation of sugar only). The process is similar to the preparation of wine or beer, but uses pure table sugar instead of a variety of different sugars, fruits or other additives. Also, more yeast is used in order to speed things up a little. The final product should be ready in a week or two. If you want to drink it, you can. Just clear it first using a clearing solution and clean the taste up using activated carbon. It still won't taste very good though. NOTE: Be aware that there are some things that when added might be dangerous. So, please, if you decide to add something to the fermentation, please verify beforehand that it is safe. Here are some calculators to calculate how much sugar you need to make a certain amount of alcohol. http://homedistiller.org/sugar/wash-sugar/yield





How To Make Alcohol Rockets From Soda Bottles
Check out SonicDad.com to see more great projects! http://www.sonicdad.com/ SonicDad's Bottle Rocket Project: http://youtu.be/BR6n31OphuY v v v v v v v Click 'Show more' v v v v v v v Some of you that have followed me for a while might recognize this project as an upgraded version of my water bottle rocket launcher, seen in this video: http://youtu.be/YRtFY_O0HcU While the old design was the cause of quite a few singed arm hairs, this new model is much more pleasant to use due to the new blast shield as well as the distance from the rockets that has been achieved by having the igniter on a longer leash. Even so, safety glasses are a required precaution, just in case. I recently participated in leading some science based activities for grade school aged kids and these bottle launchers were a big hit. The kids had a lot of fun attaching craft foam fins onto the bottles with duct tape and hot glue. The launchers themselves only take about 20 minutes to put together, so it's a quick and easy project that offers a ton of entertainment. The rockets are fueled by the combustion of rubbing alcohol, which is ignited by the spark from a barbecue igniter. I used rubbing alcohol with a concentration of about 90% in the video, but any concentration of 70% or greater should work just as well. When fueling the bottles, the most important step as shown in the video is to whip the last drops of liquid alcohol out the open end. This brings the fuel/air mixture to the proper level for a good combustion, and reduces the liquid alcohol particles expelled from the rocket upon launch that otherwise could melt the plastic blast shield or cause minor burns. A neat trick I did not mention in the video is that once the bottles have been fueled, rather than pushing them onto the launcher the cap can be put back on the bottle to have it ready to fire later.

The Truth about Ethanol - Addressing the Myths
This presentation was created to address the common topics of concerns as it pertains to ethanol, or 200 proof alcohol as a fuel. In this presentation the topics addressed include: the US energy necessity to maintain our standard of living, US national security, food supply and how fuel relates to it and health effects of our fuel supply especially the questionable blending practices of today's fuel. Don't believe everything you read or hear on T.V., as all of the data shared in this presentation can be verified and proven by organizations such as the USDA, EPA and various other government and private organizations. Make some noise and be heard if this is something that bothers you!
