I doubt that ethanol is as explosive as gasoline.  The biggest problem is that ethanol burns with a pale blue flame that cannot be seen in sunlight.  I'm sure some kind of additive could be found to rectify that.  As ethanol is in widespread use in other countries, all we need to do is tap into their experiences.  No need to make the same mistakes twice.

Great idea. I wonder what modificaations thet made to the pumps in Brazil?

Not that is is a recommendation or anything but you may want to look at the Parent company of Gilbarco maker of 50% of gas pumps worldwide. DHR

I think we should move away from fossil fuel all together, there is no clean burning fossil fuels, and it takes a very expensive process to get it to the point it is today.
not very clean.

Hydrogen would be my first choice followed by strontium 90. Hydrogen's by product when burned is water, this is worth the investment and extra tax, I would rather support this, then waist more money trying to clean benzine products.

Strontium 90 is another challenge, but not impossible, it can be used as an energy source with very little bad by products, and its virtually an unlimited resource, but it would require a small fusion element to extract the energy. I don't think the anti nuke folks would buy into it, but I would.
