Problems of Corn Alcohol Processing to Blend With Gasoline for Automobile Fuel." If you will cast your mind back to the summer, and winter of 1932 you will no doubt remember that I made a personal research on this problem in Algona. Since I had no ''irons in the fire then", nor do I have now, the results were honest as my meager ability as a technical man who understands the road of research could make them. S. H. McNutt states that "It may be—can be answered by engineers perfecting a carburetor especially for vaporizing alcohol." Evidently Mr. McNutt did not think It necessary to try anhydrous alcohol in his car with Its modern carburetor. I tried anhydrous alcohol which I obtained by distilling the impurities off of denatured alcohol and found that my Model A 1931 Ford operated very well on It. It Is true that the performance In miles per gallon was not as good as with gasoline, but an engineer never expects that alcohol will give as good performance as gasoline because its heat value is very much lower. I again demonstrated that It was possible to operate my Ford in the summer time on the undlstllled denatured alcohol that Is used as an antl-freeze, however In this case the engine operated very erratic which was due to the denaturent, and the water In the alcohol. In both cases the carburetor had sufficient adjustment to compensate for the difference In the viscosity of the two fuels. These tests were witnessed by reliable people who made It a point to observe every detail. Blending alcohol with gasoline up to 15 per cent produces a very desirable fuel providing that a few mechanical precautions are taken to prevent water getting Into the fuel. These are very elmentary, and have straight forward solutions which can be easily solved by an engineer who understands Internal combustion engine fuels, 'and fuel systems. It may be Interesting to Mr. McNutt to learn that the government has found that an Alcohol Gasoline Blend up to 15 per cent proved to be one of the best aviation fuels, but was discontinued because of the great care that was necessary to prevent water enter- rinc.ttw gasoline tajik.
