E Ethanol And Your Old Car

When you start asking questions about converting you American classic cars to E85 ethanol, you'll hear a lot of people telling you that it can't be done, because the alcohol will eat all the rubber components, and to an extent this is true, it will eat all the rubber components in your fuel system, being as how fossil fuels are made from oil, they won't eat your rubber components.But don't let this discourage you from converting your car to E85, it's a better running, higher performing and cleaner burning fuel for your car, and to start on your conversion, you might want to start by pulling all of the rubber fuel lines off your car, and bending up some nice steel fuel lines, and for those areas where you need rubber lines, just go a head and use the urethane plastic lines to replace the short sections that you need, you got to remember that plastic, while it will bend around corners, it's a lot more likely to kink then rubber is, so use it in as straight of a line as you can.The fuel lines are the first step, after you get those done, you'll move on to the major components of your fuel system, such as you fuel pump, carburetor, fuel filter, and the rest of your components that make up your fuel system, obviously you can get these components from parts sellers like Jegs, and Summit Racing, people have a tendency to think that you can't update an old car because the things that you need to do it are not built, but cars have been running alcohol on the race track for years, and if they can run it you can to, the race track is where most of the new developments and innovations are made for your car.

I would suggest that you convert your old car to fuel injection for the best possible results, and the biggest gain for your car, I know how some people think that you need to keep your old car all factory stock, but it's your car, do what you want to it, it's about time that people begin to update their old cars, and take advantage of some of the new technology that is available today, don't listen to nay Sayers, and doubters, they don't like old cars any way, and nothing is impossible, your car is only as limited as your imagination.I'm here to tell you, you can do anything to your old car that they do to the new ones, maybe not quite as easy, but remember the old days, we had to build most of the modifications that we wanted on our car, by ourselves, and that is something that you can't do with a new car, if you need help doing a conversion, then you might want to join our mailing list because this is one of the subjects that I will cover in detail in our ezine.
