Sometimes Autoblog can get it wrong:
A concept version of the 9-5 with a 310hp flex-fuel biodiesel will be shown at the North American International Auto Show, Michigan, in January.
Ah, no. That’s Biopower, the engine that runs e85, the ethanol blended fuel.
Then again, sometimes Autoblog prove themselves to be a wonderfully useful little bunch, especially when they produce articles such as this one, which indicates a whole boatload of research that’s about to be funded to look into the future capability for e85 manufacture and distribution for both the commercial sector, and……….wait for it……….it’s the kicker………..The US Military!
It seems they don’t ever want to be squeezed by the short and curlies in terms of regular fuel supplies for the military machine, and an e85 manufacturing and distribution system is one way they can secure their mobility and continuity.
So what does all this mean for us? A greater chance of the e85 Biopower Saab range being made available as an alternative fuel option for sale in the US.
Naysayers, speak to the hand. It runs on regular too, OK?
