Faster, Cheaper & Cleaner

CHEAPER motoring is high on the agenda for most motorists. Combine that with cleaner fuel and enhanced performance and you’ve got the dream car.

But that dream can turn to reality thanks to a West Country firm.

Green Fuels, based near Malmesbury in Wiltshire, is offering a large matchbox sized gizmo which changes an ordinary petrol driven car into a clean one by converting it to run on bio-ethanol E85.

One end of the Fullflex Gold Bi-Fuel Manager plugs into the vehicle’s engine management unit while the other is attached to the injectors. Once fitted - an hour long job for a garage - the vehicle can run on 100 per cent bio-ethanol E85, unleaded petrol or a mix of both.

The results are reduced emissions, cheaper fuel and a power boost.

Fullflex Gold Bi-fuel Manager has been used for the last 20 years in Brazil where sugar beet - used in the making of bio-ethanol - is plentiful.

Bio-ethanol is seen as the way forward towards more environmentally friendly motoring. Both Ford and Saab have recently launched FlexiFuel cars while over 9000 such vehicles have been sold in Scandinavia in the last few months.

And Morrison’s supermarket chain is leading the way in the UK with bio-ethanol pumps on forecourts in Norfolk and Somerset where the fuel is 2p per litre cheaper than premium unleaded.

The Fullflex Manager costs between £450 and £550, dependent on the number of cylinders, and is available from Green Fuels which is the sole distributor for the UK and the rest of Europe.
