Filling Up With Ethanol Not That Advantageous

Filling up with ethanol is advantageous in just 7 Brazilian states, according to data from the National Agency of Petroleum, Natural Gas and Biocombustibles (ANP). Ethanol is more competitive than gasoline in Ceará, Goiás, Mato Grosso, Mato Grosso do Sul, Paraná, São Paulo and Tocantins. In Bahia and Pernambuco it doesn’t matter if one chooses combustible alcohol or gasoline in their tank. In the other 17 states and the Capital, gasoline has the advantage.

In the state of São Paulo, which makes up for almost 60% of ethanol consumption, the renewable combustible has the third largest advantage in Brazil, losing to Goiás and Mato Grosso. – Administradores

  1. I’m glad you report this kind of thing here. I hope you have not only foreigners living in Brazil but foreigners living about, so they can see the real Brasil. And not only the Brasil-World-Cup-Olympic-Games bullshit that we like to sell.

    It’s a shame to read this article. Petrobras and Lula wants to sell ethanol to the USA and Europe and we can barely keep the price competitive for our own consumption. Imagine selling it to other countries? And I don’t know if people know.. but even the gasoline they sell at the gas stations is mixed with ethanol to make it cheaper. Which means, we pay a high price for a product (gasoline) but we take a less quality product than our neighbors like Argentina, for example. Brazil Brazil…. the country of the future. Ha!
