I've heard that ethanol burns dirtier than fossil fuels do which is pretty disappointing. One could otherwise believe that using self-replicating plants as fuel would be utopian.
Friendly reminder that steam power never stopped being a quality energy source and that the transition into oil fuel is in no way in improvement but in fact a step backward, if for no other reason than it produces less
Pill me on steam power. Doesn't it require way more liquid volume (not that it should matter)? Also isn't it dangerous considering the pressures involved? Or could solar-heated steam vehicles be the future after all? heh
ethanol is an extremely clean burning fuel, its combustion byproducts are water and co2. it fucks up engines because its a very potent solvent, just about anything will dissolve in it, including most nonmetallic engine parts.
whats the heat source to make the steam?
