Fact of the Day: Green Brazil

Along with many other countries, Brazil mandates the use of ethanol-mixed gasoline fuels for cars. Though the typical percentage (about 20 percent) is higher than the United States's ten percent. Most of the Brazil's ethanol comes from sugar-cane, instead of corn.

  6. I did know about their use of sugar-cane. But then they have a great climate to grow it in.

  7. I'd heard ethanol wasn't as good for engines...so it seems 20 percent would be pretty damaging, but maybe not?
