Flex-fuel : Increase in Petrol – Diesel Prices is not taking the name of stopping. Every morning people get to hear the increase in the prices of petrol and diesel. In the month of October itself, the prices of petrol and diesel have been increased 21 times. Taking many metros of the country, petrol and diesel have crossed Rs 100 per liter in small and big cities. Rather, if the trend of increasing the price continues, then some cities will soon start getting petrol for Rs.
In such a situation, the question arises that how long will the pockets of the common people continue to be cut in the affair of expensive petrol and diesel. The government is also facing constant criticism. In such a situation, the government is trying to reduce the dependence on petrol and diesel. The work of ethanol blading is already going on. But now the government is trying to launch Flex-Fuel in the country as soon as possible, so that the common people can get rid of expensive petrol and diesel. But this question must be running in your mind that what is Flex-Fuel after all. Actually these days flex-fuel cars and flex-fuel are being discussed continuously. Let me tell you what is flex-fuel after all?
What is flex-fuel after all?
With Flex-Fuel, you can run your car on fuel mixed with ethanol. Let us tell you that flex-fuel is an alternative fuel made from a combination of gasoline and methanol or ethanol. A flex-engine is basically a standard petrol engine, with some additional components that run on more than one fuel or mixture. Therefore, flex engines are prepared at a lower cost as compared to electric vehicles. The government is working fast on this.
Flex fuel may become mandatory in 6 to 8 months
Road Transport Minister Nitin Gadkari said that the government is going to make Flex Fuel Engine mandatory in the next 6 months. He said that this rule will be made for all types of vehicles. Apart from this, orders will be given to all auto companies to fit flex fuel engines in their vehicles.
Guidelines will be issued soon
The government may soon announce guidelines regarding flex-fuel and compel car manufacturers to make flex-fuel engines in future. It is considered more practical than an electrical vehicle. Therefore, at existing petrol pumps, petrol will offer bio-fuel in addition to diesel. Let us tell you that the cost of bio ethanol is much less per liter than petrol.
can drive cheaply
If flex fuel engine becomes mandatory then people will be able to run their vehicles on ethanol. The price of ethanol is Rs 65-70 per liter, while petrol currently remains at over Rs 100 per litre.
How are flex fuel engines
Let us tell you that the vehicles with flex engine are quite different from the vehicles with by fuel engine. Bio fuel engines have different tanks. At the same time, in flex fuel engine, you will be able to put many types of fuel in the same tank. Such engines are specially designed.
Maruti Suzuki will bring flex fuel engine
Maruti is planning to develop flex fueled cars. Flex fuel will be cheaper, but the vehicle’s engine will have to undergo modifications which may increase the procurement cost. Along with petrol and CNG, flex fuel will be the third option. A flex fuel engine can basically run on standalone or a mixture of two types of fuel, Maruti is planning to introduce ethanol powered flex fuel vehicle. Usually a mixture of petrol and ethanol is used, flex fuel will be cheaper than petrol, but the cost of purchasing such a vehicle can be high.
