  1. New Saab 9-5 (2010 - on)
    Bought 2011 95 about 3 months ago; 26K on odometer. Found ethanol station nearby and used about 3 tanks of ethanol. Engine started throwing a "Throttle Position Sensor" code, would go into LMH. If turned off and then restarted would often run fine. Local dealer looked at it and said throttle...

    If you believe recent news reports then ethanol is responsible for expensive tortillas, hungry cows, unmanageable fires, endangered animals, global corning, high taxes, rabid dogs, Hillary, and that itch in the middle of your back that you can’t quite reach. Of course, the truth is buried deep...

    Back in January, General Motors used the Detroit Motor Show to announce a major partnership with Koskata, a firm poised to begin producing ethanol at around $1 per gallon, using no food crops in the process. That venture is ongoing. Today, GM have announced another partnership, with a...

    I wrote a little about this a few days ago, but the rpess release has only just come out in the last 24 hours or so. This is quite remarkable. —— The world’s first ethanol powered diesel car at the Malmö Motor Show. The world’s first diesel car converted to the environment friendly fuel...

    The following video covers the announcement of GM’s partnership with Coskata in a new process for the manufacture of ethanol, a process that’ll use waste resources rather than corn, will use much less water, and will cost less as well. Saab’s own Kjell AC Bergstrom features in part of the...

    ctm sent me through this story just prior to Christmas. He translated it from Swedish publication Ny Teknik. A couple of interesting things come from it. First is the fact that the US Ambassador to Sweden drives a Saab 9-5 BioPower when he’s not in the official US Caddy. Maybe he’d like...
  8. Saab 9000 (1984 - 1998)
    I put in a tank of biofuel in and i seem to have lost boost (Its only boosting to 4psi instead of 6psi (I dont even know if 6psi is normal..)) Anyway i was just wondering if this ethanol petrol mix isn't well suited to turbo cars? I doesn't say anything about it on the faq sheet, but then again...

    I just got this in my inbox from Jane, from Team Ethanol. They’re participating in the Greenfleet section of the World Solar Challenge in a Saab 9-5 BioPower and I’ve been following their progress for the last few days. —— Hey Steve, The Team just made it to Ayers Rock. So I have a beer...

    …and it sounds like they’re pretty impressed with the BioPower 9-5 they’re driving. They still haven’t released detailed figures yet, but a quick look at things says that they’re achieving 10.5 litres per 100 kms. Now, they’re running a 2.0 BioPower car imported by Saab Oz from the UK...

    As suspected, those Flickr photos weren’t just for the folks at Flickr to have a look at. Team Ethanol have a blog. The World Solar Challenge is starting today, so this will be a good way to keep up with their progress. With regard to the fuel consumption question, and whether or not...

    Photo Credits: Saab History During the 2007 60th Anniversary Saab Festival in Sweden back in early June, I took some photographs while visiting a fuel station in our rented 2007 Saab 9-3 SportCombi that I filled up in the quaint little town of Skövde. As I glanced over at the ethanol prices in...

    This past week, Minnesota ran an ethanol promotion in celebration of flag day where prices of E-85 were in some places as low as .85 cents per gallon. While this is a very low price in comparison to today’s prices, dating back to gasoline equivalents before the millenium, it would be...

    There's a couple of things going against ethanol as a mainstream alternative fuel (if that's not too much of a contradictory term). <blockquote>1) In the US, it's mostly made from corn, which is inefficient and fuels the food vs fuel argument. 2) The transport issue. It's not possible to...

    Interesting that I write an article hassling Saab about BioPower availability in the USA and on the same day, the Detroit News puts out what amounts pretty much to a scare article about ethanol.
