Re: Alcoholic renaults + diesel for petrol

Bioethanol seems to be gaining in popularity at the top-end of the market, with Bentley and Koenigsegg achieving some substanial horsepower gains on models optimised for that fuel.

Naturally, it's a bit different for the Renault, where it's simply being used as an alternative fuel.

Where the fuel comes from, I honestly don't know - I'm reckoning on a country with no oil reserves, or a real 'green-conscience'.

Regarding changing the car - are you getting 'itchy feet' or do you have doubts on the longevity of the current car?

This job should never be complete - the day I think I've done it all, is the day I resign.
