St. Johns, FL – Multi-media car-talk personality and automotive service industry veteran, Bobby Likis, brings ethanol fuel system experts into the Fall 2012 General Meeting of the National Automotive Service Task Force (NASTF). Likis’s panel will present exciting new engine technologies that will help automakers meet the mandated Corporate Average Fuel Economy (CAFE) standard (54.5 mpg by 2025) and help prepare automotive technicians for servicing tomorrow’s vehicles. On the “Ethanol Myth Busters” panel will be Dr. Matti Vint, Chief Engineer for Ricardo Engineering, developers of the Extreme Boost Direct Injection (EBDI) 3.2L/V6 engine — optimized for the high-octane properties of ethanol — that rivals a 6.4L Diesel. Also on the panel will be Robert White, Director of Development for the Renewable Fuels Association, an acclaimed expert on ethanol fuels.
