Dodging the Roadkill: Ethanol Part 2

 

Dodging the Roadkill - A Biker's JourneyClarksville, TN – Last year I wrote an article about Ethanol, and its effects on motorcycles and small engines.  You can read it here. 

I’m not an expert on much, especially motorcycles.  I don’t give advice, I share my experiences and opinions.  I learn by riding and by riding with other brothers who know WAY more about being a biker than me.

I’ve made it clear that Dodging the Roadkill, is about my personal journey and the people and places I meet along the way.  I learn from my friends and followers and by trying new things.  I’ve learned so much over the course of these three years, it’s unbelievable and those of you who follow my blog have enlightened me on many things.

Dodging the Roadkill: The Ethanol Debate

 

Dodging the Roadkill - A Biker's JourneyClarksville, TN – I recently posed the question on my Dodging the Roadkill Facebook page about what grade of fuel do most bikers use?  I have always pumped “high grade” octane.  Knowing that most pumps have up to 10% Ethanol. 

I also learned that a lot of bikers don’t use high grade gas.  They use regular gas, but also put additives in their tank. 

The American Motorcycle Association has voiced it’s opposition to any increase in the amount of Ethanol in gas as higher blends of this corn based product could damage motorcycles, ATV’s and smaller engines.

The Government disagrees.  Or maybe they don’t care.

NASA measurements show Ethanol Refineries Emissions may be higher than Estimated

 

Written by Patrick Lynch
NASA’s Earth Science News Team

NASA - National Aeronautics and Space AdministrationWashington, D.C. – Ethanol fuel refineries could be releasing much larger amounts of ozone-forming compounds into the atmosphere than current assessments suggest, according to a new study based on a field campaign that included a NASA sensor.

Airborne measurements made downwind from an ethanol fuel refinery in Decatur, Illinois, in 2013 found ethanol emissions 30 times higher than government estimates.

The measurements also showed emissions of all volatile organic compounds (VOCs), which include ethanol, were five times higher than government numbers, which estimate emissions based on manufacturing information.

Air-quality readings over the Midwest were made from an aircraft in 2013 at three different distances downwind from an ethanol refining plant in Decatur, Illinois. The measurements were used to calculate emissions of various gases, including VOCs, nitrogen oxides and sulfur dioxide. (Joost de Gouw)
