bio fuel discussion by chemist



A chemist explains some basics about the bio-fuel source. It is more than for cars.
Some know I am psychotically against the concept of "EGR valve" and exhaust gas recirculation. This chemist hits the peaceful nail right on the head.
Leaving a one time fuel burn for CO2 more than NOX is nature by god.. and it does recycle, back to useful, by nature...to go through the whole singular burn process again.

without a properly functioning egr valve your car has to retard the ignition to prevent octane knock. When working correctly, it also reduces emmisions.
