Is E-10 Gasoline Really E-10? An Investigation of Ethanol Blended Gasoline
Recently, there has been a great interest in the blended fuels for the purpose of reducing carbon dioxide emissions. In this brief communication we report near infrared (NIR) spectra of several ethanol blended gasoline samples collected from the ten different gas stations in the Palm Beach County of the State of Florida (USA). The ethanol content of the gas samples was predicted from the previously established NIR calibration. To our surprise the maximum ethanol content of the studied samples was about 7% or less. Some comments are made to understand the rationale behind using less ethanol in gasoline by the gas suppliers.
