gasohol, a gasoline extender made from a mixture of <A HREF="http://www.answers.com/main/ntquery;jsessionid=7acf1bo1733ou?method=4&dsid=2040&dekey=gasoline&gwp=8&curtab=2040_1&sbid=lc02b">gasoline</A> (90%) and <A HREF="http://www.answers.com/main/ntquery;jsessionid=7acf1bo1733ou?method=4&dsid=2040&dekey=ethanol&gwp=8&curtab=2040_1&sbid=lc02b">ethanol
</A> (10%; often obtained by fermenting agricultural crops or crop wastes) or 
gasoline (97%) and <A HREF="http://www.answers.com/main/ntquery;jsessionid=7acf1bo1733ou?method=4&dsid=2040&dekey=methanol2&gwp=8&curtab=2040_1&sbid=lc02b">methanol</A>,or wood alcohol (3%). Gasohol has higher octane, or 
antiknock,properties than gasoline and burns more slowly, coolly, and 
completely,resulting in reduced emissions of some pollutants, but it alsovaporizes more 
readily, potentially aggravating ozone pollution in warmweather. 
Ethanol-based gasohol is expensive and energy intensive toproduce, and can damage rubber 
seals and diaphragms and certainfinishes if the ethanol is present in higher 
concentrations. Since1998, however, many American automobiles have been equipped 
to enablethem to run on E85, a mixture of 85% ethanol and 15% 
gasoline.Methanol-based gasohol is also expensive to produce and is toxic andcorrosive, and 
its emissions produce cancer-causing formaldehyde. Seealso <A HREF="http://www.answers.com/main/ntquery;jsessionid=7acf1bo1733ou?method=4&dsid=2040&dekey=automob&gwp=8&curtab=2040_1&sbid=lc02b">automobile</A>.
