Ethanol’s in the news, and automotive expert, technician and car-talk host Bobby Likis invites you to be in the know. “Before you as a respected automotive technician jump on the naysayer bandwagon, consider ethanol’s high-octane, high-performance and anti-knock properties,” says Likis.  

Octane rating is the standard measure of the anti-knock index — or AKI — of a motor fuel.  The higher the octane, the less the knock.  At 113 octane rating, ethanol protects against detonation, engine knock … and engine damage.  

Likis’s nationwide feature, “Calling All Technicians: 20 Facts About Ethanol,” is designed to enlighten, educate and energize technicians in particular and relies on verifiable science – not myths – to substantiate the facts.
