Bio Industry Basics #4: Higher Ethanol Blends Increase Engine Efficiency

A recent University of Nebraska study has shown that higher ethanol blends can increase engine efficiency. Here are a few facts:

  • The study found that higher ethanol blends produce better energy conversion than other fuels, which means vehicles can travel farther using less energy.
  • E85, a blend of 85 percent ethanol and 10 percent gasoline, improved energy conversion by as much as 14 percent compared to E10.
  • When considering fuel economy, a combination of fuel efficiency and price, researchers said E85 was the best choice every time in their study.
