I agree, my only excuse is that the article I obtained this information from used the wording I used. I have reworded the post to read correctly.


I'm an ecomonics student and I have to admit I didn't know anything about ethanol until I heard Alan Greenspan tout cellulose ethanol as the "the only thing that can be a competitive thrust against gasoline". When I started reading about it on The Energy Blog and www.InvestInCelluloseEthanol.com, I was amazed! The frenzy over cellulose ethanol in unbelievable. Tree huggers love it. Politicians love it. Investors love it. I bought a few shares of SunOpta a few months ago and now I'm making a killing. ...and considering I enjoy breathing clean air, I feel really good about my investment in cellulosic ethanol.

In late September 2006, Honda Motor Co., Ltd., announced the development of a Flex Fuel Vehicle (FFV) system allowing gasoline engine-based power plants to operate on either 100 percent ethanol or most any mixture of gasoline and ethanol. While this concept is not new, the Honda FFV fuel system has advanced the technology to be more adaptive to varying fuel mixtures, and ambient temperature changes.
