Hi all,

About 10 years ago I worked in a chemistry lab with the same problem.  The
semi-retired head of the lab would take a 4 liter bottle of our used
alcohol and put it in his gas tank.

Unfortunately, it had some benzene in it which led us to speculate about
the number of people following him on the freeway who eventually got
leukemia.  We were not biologists...what did we know?  

I hear they are recycling alcohol here at UW and that it didn't cost much
to set up the process.  A night job, perhaps?
