Unique Fuel Conversion System For Ethanol Power Cars

Abcesso Technology has launched for the first time outside Brazil their latest fuel conversion system for ethanol power cars. When installed it makes the normal gasoline car behave and perform as a Flex Fuel Vehicle. The system is totally automatic, there is no fuel selection switch, and the management system recognizes the "lambda probe" signal and automatically adjusts to whichever fuel is being used in any proportion.

Ethanol is a clean-burning, renewable, produced by fermentation. It is a product of sugar metabolism in certain species of yeast in the absence of oxygen. The process of culturing yeast under conditions to produce alcohol is referred to as brewing. Yeasts can grow in the presence of up to only about 14% alcohol, but the concentration of alcohol in the final product can be increased by distillation.

Ethanol contains oxygen that provides a cleaner and more efficient burn of the fuel. When used in ethanol power cars, it reduces carbon dioxide, a major contributor to global warming. Although burning ethanol still releases carbon dioxide during production and combustion.

The use of ethanol blended fuel is very popular in the United States. One of the most popular is E85 fuel a mixture of conventional gasoline and ethanol. The result is a much cleaner burning fuel that is just as efficient as standard fuels. This mixture is optimized for a combination of clean exhaust and efficiency and will function properly in almost any non-diesel car or truck.

So, what is ethanol? Ethanol is ethyl alcohol which needs to be 100% pure. Ethanol is the highest performance fuel on the market and keeps today's high-compression engines running smoothly. Ethanol-blended fuel (such as E85) keeps your fuel system clean, cause it does not leave gummy exhausts.

And because ethanol burns cleaner, it produces fewer emissions. Today, all ethanol cars manufacturers approve the use of ethanol blended fuels and even recommend to use ethanol for its positive environmental impacts.

The use of an ethanol will allow to increase the performance of ethanol cars in general. Initial tests showed that ethanol may also extend from 20 to 80% the engine's maintenance. The conversion of existing engines is not only feasible, but also cost effective.

Be earth friendly and play your part in pollution control by installing fuel conversion products to improve fuel economy. Who allow your fuel efficient car to run using ethanol fuel, gasoline or even mix of both -- E85 fuel. More details at
