New pact with Brazile

Pres Bush signed a pact with Brazile on Bio fuels today.

This should help getting the USA on track and help push states to get into bio fuels.

I'm doing my part to reduce our dependency on foreign oil and clean up the environment; my truck runs on 100% biodiesel made from soybean oil grown by U.S. farmers. What are you doing?

Did I read somewhere that something like 90% of Brazillian vehicles run on ethanol/bio fuels?

I know that question can't be answered by anyone other than myself, but does the information sound accurate?

Cookie,
*That* was funny. I'll have to remember that if I ever see somebody post without qualifying the question as you did

I found multiple stats claiming from 28% to 70+% of vehicles on the road in Brazil running some type of Ethanol or blend. I have read that a lot of cars over there are running some sort of blend. I guess I can believe 90ish%.

I did some checking a while back about converting our Honda to E85/100. The only outfit at that time that sold a computer to control the injectors for my car was out of Brazil.

Mike
