Audi Creates Batch of E-Gas Called ‘E-Benzin’

May 25, 2015 - 9:10 AM - by

Audi continues to move forward with the development of sustainable, synthetic fuels.

Last month, the German automaker created the first batch of e-diesel, a synthetic diesel fuel that uses CO2 and water as the only raw materials for its creation. Now, along with partner Global Bioenergies, the first batch of Audi 'e-benzin' has been manufactured, synthetically produced without the use of petroleum. According to Audi, it is 100 percent iso-octane and has an outstanding octane rating of RON 100. In addition, the e-benzin has no sulfur or benzene, allowing it to burn very cleanly.

With its high octane rating, the fuel can be used in high-compression ratio engines for enhanced efficiency and the company will move forward by testing the new fuel in the lab and test engines. The two companies will also find ways to modify the process so that it requires no biomass, instead requiring just water, hydrogen, CO2 and sunlight.

'Global Bioenergies has demonstrated the viability of the Audi ‘e-benzin’ production process,' said Reiner Mangold, Head of

Audi’s latest concept car takes advantage of electric turbocharging to create serious power in a small package.

By using an electric turbocharging system, the Audi TT Clubsport Turbo Technology Concept boasts 600 HP and 479 lb-ft of torque. That’s enough to carry it from 0-60 MPH in 3.6 seconds to a top speed of 192.6 MPH and all from a 2.5-liter five-cylinder engine.

“In our TDI engines, we are close to production readiness with this technology. We are now presenting it in a TFSI – here too, we are the first automaker in the world to do this. Audi technical development boss Ulrich Hackenberg said today at the Wörthersee Tour in Reifnitz, Austria.

Why Won’t My Car Start?

May 05, 2015 - 11:05 AM - by

Without a doubt, every owner dreads the moment when their car won’t start. What should you do? Who should you call? Can you fix it yourself? Here’s a list with ten common reasons why cars don’t start up and what you can do about it.

'The first step is to define the no start' said Joe Spadafora, certified instructor at Universal Technical Institute’s Exton, Pennsylvania campus. Spadafora spent the majority of his career in working in the service department of several dealerships and receiving factory training from GM. He’s certified as a Master Technician and certified by Chrysler as a Dodge Viper technician . He also holds certifications from Subaru, Suzuki, Toyota, Lexus and Scion as well, so if there’s something wrong with your car, chances are he’s seen it before.

To diagnose the reason your car isn’t starting, you need to pay attention to happening when you turn the key. 'Does the engine crank but not actually start or, when you turn the key, does literally nothing happen?' he said. 'In a customer’s eyes, the following two options are the same because both create a scenario that results in the vehicle’s failure to run.'
