Brazilian Ethanol Converter to Lower House Gas Emissions

By: Vidar Lura

AutoFFV is so called because this latest export model is 100% fully automatic. When installed it makes the normal gasoline car behave and perform as a Flex Fuel Vehicle (FFV). This enables the vehicle to run on any mix of Gasoline and Ethanol.

Today we see a growing roll out of E85 (85% Ethanol and 15% gasoline) fuel pumps in forecourts and the AutoFFV converter is optimized to use this fuel and adapt automatically and economically to any mix below this. Using E85 has a dramatic effect on lowering green house gas (GHG) emissions with tests showing CO2 emissions lower by 40% to 70%, depending on the vehicle and driving conditions. "With an average of over 50% lower GHG emissions, this relatively low cost upgrade to a car not only is environment friendly it can also save money and help lower fossil fuel imports" said Mr. Vidar Lura, managing director of Abcesso. He added "we have seen in Brazil over the past 20 years the very positive impact this converter technology and FFV take up has had on lowering dependence on fuel imports and helping keep our air cleaner". Running a car on E85 with an AutoFFV conversion improves performance, the car runs cleaner and it can save money.

AutoFFV also provides the driver the option to fill up with any mix of fuel. AutoFFV is a 'plug and play' upgrade, once plugged in no additional switching or calibration is ever needed. It can also be removed at any time so the original manufacturers' vehicle specification is maintained. AutoFFV is manufactured in Brazil for Abcesso to the highest quality standards by Letande Ind. Ltda.

Abcesso are now recruiting and training distributors and authorized dealers with the focus on areas where E85 fuel pumps are now established or scheduled to roll out.
