Etamax D (Mélange diesel & éthanol)

Etamax D
Etamax D is a bioethanol fuel for converted diesel engines. Ethanol,
with an ignition improver, has become a powerful environmental
alternative and an established fuel for busses ever since the initial
successful tests with ethanol busses in the 80`s. Ethanol blends
reduce emissions and help to diminish the green house effect.
Sweden is a leading country in the development of ethanol
technology. Bioethanol can now be gradually introduced into
the distribution systems of gasoline and diesel. Currently in
Sweden, there are approximately 550 busses that operate on
ethanol. For instance, all of the busses in the inner city of
Stockholm operate on ethanol.
Fuel composition:
95 % ethanol: 92.2 weight-%
Ignition improver: 5.0 weight-%
MTBE (denaturing): 2.3 weight-%
Isobuthanol (denaturing): 0.5 weight-%
Corrosion inhibitor: 90 ppm
