How to Make Your Own Alcohol Fuels by Larry Carley

This book was a best-seller when it was first published back in 1980. The U.S. was experiencing high gasoline prices and fuel shortages caused by the Arab Oil Embargo. President Jimmy Carter lowered the national speed limit to 55 mph, and everyone was looking for a home-grown alternative to petroleum-based fuel. Gasohol (a mixture of 90 percent gasoline and 10 percent ethanol alcohol made from corn) was being used to stretch fuel supplies. But many people, particularly those who lived in rural areas and had a farm, had a better idea. Why not make your own alcohol fuel and convert your vehicles to run on ethanol alcohol? That was why this book was written.

How to Make Your Own Alcohol Fuels has been out-of-print for over 20 years now, yet people still are interested in this topic. The book's premise of making your own alcohol fuel as an alternative fuel to gasoline is still valid, and the basic methodology for making alcohol has not changed, so the book is still current in that respect. Some of the resources listed in the book are obviously out-of-date but the plans on how to build various types of stills and how to brew your own alcohol (for fuel, not for drinking, of course!) are still useful.

Do You Drive a Flex Fuel Vehicle? Ethanol alcohol can be used in ANY late model vehicle that is FLEX FUEL capable (many Ford, GM and Chrysler cars and light trucks) with no modifications whatsoever! The engine management system will sense the ethanol in the fuel and automatically change the air/fuel ratio and spark timing to compensate.
