About this title


In this book, the author shows how he eliminated the use of gasoline by converting a car to operate on pure alcohol. He shows how the reader can easily do the same during a day. This is a step-by-step guide to one person's conversion of an older car to run on alcohol. In this guide, he uses photos, instructions and keeps a list of costs of each procedure so the reader can easily duplicate his modifications. The entire cost to convert the car was less than $37. Keat lists each part he bought and its cost. Although this was written in 1980, it has been in constant demand worldwide. Keat worked in partnership with Jim Wortham, the author of "Forget The Gas Pumps--Make Your Own Fuel." The book by Jim Wortham, explains how to receive a permit to make alcohol and how to build a moonshine still to make ethanol alcohol.

About the Author:
