The only comprehensive book ever written on alcohol fuel production and use for home and farm. Until now, it has been very difficult for farmers, contractors, alternative energy aficionados, those concerned about Peak Oil, and small-scale entrepreneurs to obtain good, accurate information on producing alcohol, or on converting vehicles to run on the fuel. Now, Alcohol Can Be a Gas! provides the definitive reference on alcohol fuel. Simultaneous.

Blume (permaculture, International Institute for Ecological Culture) has been at the forefront of alternative fuel technology for 30-plus years. In the 1980s, he wrote and hosted a 10-part how-to series, Alcohol As Fuel, for KQED, the local PBS station in San Francisco. Widespread distribution of the show--and a companion text prepared by Blume--were canceled by KQED following pressure from some of the station's corporate sponsors. Now some 25 years later--as conventional energy prices are sailing through the roof--Blume's work is finally made available in print. He provides general readers with a wide range of information about the history, production, and use of alcohol fuel, and demonstrates how a permaculturally-designed ethanol system could provide us with surpluses of local food, energy, community and power.

The only comprehensive book ever written on alcohol fuel production and use for home and farm. Until now, it has been very difficult for farmers, contractors, alternative energy aficionados, those concerned about Peak Oil, and small-scale entrepreneurs to obtain good, accurate information on producing alcohol, or on converting vehicles to run on alcohol fuel. And with all the conflicting news stories about ethanol, the public finds it difficult to sort fact from fiction. This text, which has been reviewed by scientists around the world, is the definitive reference work on alcohol fuel. Alcohol Can Be A Gas! contains 640 8-1/2” by 11” pages, with 514 charts, photos, and illustrations to reinforce the information-dense text. The book is geared for the nonscientific reader, but its 473 endnotes provide the technical foundation behind the accessible prose. A 700-word glossary and a 6300-entry index extend the book’s usefulness. More information, the table of contents, reviews, the index, excerpts from each of the chapters, clips from the DVD, and online ordering are available at www.permaculture.com.
