Top best answers to the question «Does alcohol make more power than gas»

It's often thought that alcohol makes power because it has a greater amount of energy. This isn't exactly true; in fact, the type of alcohols that are commonly used in racing have less heat energy than gasoline based on the volume.

Gasoline is much denser from an energy content perspective, meaning it takes less gas (versus alcohol) to make the same power.
