E-Fuel Unveils Home Ethanol System

E-Fuel Corporation has launched a home ethanol system, which allows consumers to create their own ethanol and pump it directly into their cars. The EFuel100 MicroFueler can produce fuel for under US $1.00 per gallon, according to the company.

The MicroFueler creates ethanol with sugar, yeast, water and a standard household 110-220 AC power supply. Cars running on sugar-based ethanol produce 85% fewer carbon emissions than gasoline. Businesses, such as breweries, bars and restaurants could use discarded alcohol beverages to create ethanol, for US $0.10 per gallon.

“E-Fuel will have a profound impact on the way we obtain and consume fuel, not unlike the paradigm shift that occurred in the 80s from the mainframe computer to the PC,” said Tom Quinn, E-Fuel Founder and CEO. “Just as the PC brought desktop computing to the home, E-Fuel will bring the filling station to the home. Making local sugar-based ethanol fuel production possible, E-Fuel can solve the commercial ethanol transportation and pump station problems while providing consumers lower cost fuel due to micro efficiencies.”

E-Fuel is now accepting orders for the MicroFueler and first shipments will begin in the fourth quarter of 2008. The EFuel100 MicroFueler is available in the United States at US $9,995.00, and all initial orders require a deposit. The MicroFueler will also be distributed to China and Brazil.
