In this recent review by the Pioneer Press Auto editor on the new 2008 SAAB 9-3, the reviewer wrote many glowing features for the car. But we found the following comments interesting, and just a bit entertaining. Seems that the auto reviewers are just waking up to the power and potential of ethanol and flexible fuel vehicles!
"The 2.0T BioPower is a flex-fuel engine that accepts E85 fuel. The 2.0-liter inline-four cylinder turbocharged 16-valve engine produces 175 horsepower on regular gas and accelerates from 0-60 mph in 8.5 seconds. Somehow the Saab engineers managed to get 14 percent more power using ethanol (E85 fuel), 200 horsepower and almost an entire second faster in 0-60 mph acceleration (7.9 seconds). Now there's an incentive to use ethanol!"Source: Chicago Sun Times (Pioneer Press Auto).
