South American countries will run on a mixture of ethanol and also have some vehicles that run on natural gas as well.
Brazil has gone the furthest in using ethanol. New cars in Brazil can run on 100% ethanol and roughly 8.3 million were being used by 2008. This has allowed the ethanol fuel industry to supply 50% of the nation’s transportation fuels in 2008. The country mandates that ethanol makes up at least 25% of the fuel at the pumps. That’s despite new-found offshore oil reserves that may yield 60 billion barrels of oil. It will be interesting to see if they stick with the ethanol or if it will use its oil to power the country’s transportation industry.
