Ethanol Fuel Injection – How To Make Your Car Run On Ethanol

Eleanor Hanson

When you make the choice to switch over to ethanol for your car, there are plenty of changes that have to go along with it. Your current vehicle is set up to use gasoline from the point of consumption to when the last drop is used. Your car has to be converted over using an ethanol fuel injection kit.

Ethanol fuel injection kits can be purchased from reputable companies across the United States and internationally. The reason for getting the fuel injection system is simple — to make your car work better, more efficiently and for it to last longer. There are different ways to look at the fuel injection system to make sure it will run optimally with ethanol.

The ethanol fuel injection kits aren’t going to come with every tiny piece you will need. These are bare-bone kits because every car is slightly different. You will need different size hoses and clamps that you have to purchase separately. Make sure the hoses are of ethanol quality because you don’t want to cause any leaks or tears in the hoses.

The next step is finding a fuel pump that is going to be most efficient with ethanol. Most pumps will use an ethanol-gasoline mix, but there are fuel pumps out there that move the ethanol better. To get the maximum performance out of the ethanol fuel injection, you need the right fuel pump. You will also have to check the carburetor to see if it can handle ethanol. Some carburetors cannot handle ethanol so you will either need to replace it or modify it with one that can pass ethanol. However, on newer cars this shouldn’t be much of a problem.

Replace all filters as well and often in the beginning. You will need to get out all the impurities from gasoline. After you finish converting your car for ethanol fuel injection you want to keep a close eye on your spark plugs. Not all will have a problem, but there is the potential for misfires. If that’s the case, get spark plugs that are for 100-percent ethanol.

If you don’t have much experience with cars, you might want to consider taking the car to a mechanic or someone who specializes in alternative fuels. Knowing your way under the hood of a car is going to be very important. So, if you don’t know the difference between a valve clamp and a spark plug, you are going to be in some serious trouble.
