Or is this the ultimate goal? The article was from April, but was part of a wider article about fuel that I was reading. As a first step, I would think so. I know of a few people who regularly use smaller concentrations, say up to 20%, ethanol as an octane enhancer for track days. It seems to be good on the late 9000s onwards ... Were they Trionic-5, or Trionic-3 throughout the production? It works. If SAAB is to move away from petrol (and/or diesel) as the primary fuel source then this is a good first step. I suppose it depends what kind of hand-in-glove relationship GM has with the oil companies. Paul 1989 900 Turbo S http://saab.go.dyndns.org/
