The question is the cost and availability of liquid fuels for combustion engines. The substitution of a mix of methanol(85% and gasoline (15%) called M-85 appears as the best current alternative. Methanol can be made cheaply and reliably from coal of which North American has an abundance. M-85 starts well in cold weather, has a low flame temperature (low NOX) and the necessary lubricity for injectors. It can streach our gasoline supplies by a factor of 6. Go to it.
