    Since one of the big cost of distilling alcohol for moter use is the heat for the still and driving a car causes a lot of heat waste you would think there would be some way to put the two togather!
    Say maybe distill a part of the alcohol you are going to use for fuel??

    I've thought along those lines before. I think the main problem is that the still will not operate properly while the vehicle is in motion.
