• Question: Why don't we use ethanol in our car fuel instead of using crude oil because crude oil is getting low and ethanol is a natural and renewable fuel used in rocket fuel and I think plane fuel too?

      Hi Xavino,

      Good to chat to you the other day in the live chats! Unfortunately I don’t think I can answer this question as I specialise in Nuclear engineering. Have you tried asking this question to Ryan? Ryan woks for Jaguar – Land Rover so he knows all about the design of car engines 🙂
