The world’s first home ethanol system, which allowsconsumers to create their own ethanol and pump it directly into their cars, was unveiled todayby the E-Fuel Corporation (http://www.efuel100.com/). The revolutionary EFuel100 MicroFueler™ isthe first product that allows anyone to reduce their dependency on oil, greatly diminish theircarbon footprint and produce fuel for under $1.00 per gallon.The MicroFueler is a leading edge product that allows consumers to create ethanol, simply andsafely, with the readily available ingredients of sugar, yeast and water, and a standardhousehold 110-220 AC power supply. Cars running on sugar-based ethanol produce 85% fewercarbon emissions than gasoline. Businesses, such as breweries, bars and restaurants can evenuse discarded alcohol beverages to create ethanol, for as little as $0.10 per gallon.“E-Fuel will have a profound impact on the way we obtain and consume fuel, not unlike theparadigm shift that occurred in the 80s from the mainframe computer to the PC,” said TomQuinn, 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 productionpossible, E-Fuel can solve the commercial ethanol transportation and pump station problemswhile providing consumers lower cost fuel due to micro efficiencies.”The portable MicroFueler unit houses the same consumer-friendly LCD touch screen interfaceand hose pumping system found at the corner gas station, so consumers can produce wherethey consume, eliminating energy waste and saving dollars. The retractable pumping hoseextends up to 50 feet, eliminating the need to situate the unit directly beside the householdvehicle.With its breakthrough membrane technology, E-Fuel has made an industrial process possibleon a much smaller scale, and without dangerous combustion processes. Additionally, theMicroFueler has achieved an 80% power improvement over commercial ethanol manufacturers,thus raising the bar of the renewable fuel standard for carbon reduction.“Henry Ford started the automobile revolution using ethanol, predicting that this renewable andaccessible fuel it would become the ‘fuel of the future,’” said Mr. Quinn. “If not for the Prohibitionlaws in the 1920s and the subsequent rise of the oil industry, ethanol may never have lost itspublic appeal. E-Fuel will deliver on Ford’s prediction, and enable consumers to bypass thecostly oil infrastructure and their reliance on fossil fuels,” said Mr. Quinn.MicroFueler AvailabilityE-Fuel is now accepting orders for the MicroFueler atwww.efuel100.com, and first shipmentswill begin in the fourth quarter of 2008.
The EFuel100 MicroFueler is available in the UnitedStates at $9,995.00, and all initial orders require a deposit. The MicroFueler will also bedistributed to China, Brazil and the UK. For U.S. buyers there are several local and nationalrebates available, and more importantly, E-Fuel will be introducing a Carbon Credit Program tooffset costs and assist in reducing carbon emissions. Consumers and interested resellers canalso attend E-Fuel sponsored workshops to learn more about the MicroFueler operation.Complete details on pricing, availability, the E-Fuel Carbon Credit Program and local workshopscan be found atwww.efuel100.com.About E‐FuelThe E‐Fuel Corporation was founded in March 2007 by Tom Quinn and ethanol scientist FloydButterfield to create efficient micro ethanol refinery products for people who want to break theirdependency on oil. As chairman of E‐Fuel, a privately held company, Quinn has solely funded thecompany and is instrumental in both corporate leadership and product development.
With more than 30 people employed in Los Gatos and Paso Robles, California and China, the employeesof E‐Fuel represent some of the top United States ethanol researchers and proven Silicon Valleyprofessionals who draw upon diverse expertise in the ethanol, electronics, automotive and softwareindustries.E‐Fuel creates ethanol micro refinery products that conform to U.S. safety and durability standards andinclude modern safety features. E‐Fuel products are available for purchase online and through anetwork of worldwide resellers. For more information. Ref: http://www.efuel100.com/
