Dont let the rising gasoline prices choke your budget and cause sleepless nights. Jim Wortham began his study of alternative energy in 1979 when he compiled research and car conversion information for this book. Jim was part of a grassroots movement to convert cars, trucks, motorcycles, lawnmowers and farm machinery to run on legally made home distilled alcohol. Jim insists that you can completely eliminate the use of petroleum oil by using synthetic motor oil instead of conventional oil. One of the synthetic oils, Mobil 1, was selected and used as the original motor oil for Chevrolet Corvette, Mercedes Benz AMG, Porche, Dodge Viper, Dodge Ram SRT 10, and Cadillac CTS, XLR, SRX, STS. Mobil 1 is the official motor oil of NASCAR. Jim explains how most anyone can get a permit to make alcohol fuel, how to make a moonshine still, how to distill alcohol, and provides photos and instructions of car engine modifications. A frequent question from readers is What is the cost per gallon when using alcohol as fuel? Farmers using crops for distillation have reported the cost to be about $1.50 or less per gallon. Purchasing sugar may be an easier and less expensive way to make alcohol instread of using crops. Most cities have chemical companies that will sell alcohol in 55-gallon containers. Prices per gallon may greatly vary from company to company. The buring of alcohol as automotive fuel does not polute the air, saving people from potential health problems. Jim worked in partnership with Keat B. Drane, who wrote a book titled Convert Your Car To Alcohol. Keat completed all the conversion of a Dodge Dart for less than $37.
