This paper is concerned with the ethanol using as the alternative fuel in Myanmar. The sugarcane is the main feedstock of ethanol production among the maize, cassava, potato, sweet potato, yam, broken rice, and sweet sorghum meanwhile the alcohol distillation technology has been well established in Myanmar. According to the FAO’s project in fiscal year 2008, the sugar production was much more exceeded 117363 million tons in Myanmar stock. The resultant surplus sugar output was diverted to bioethanol production to utilize as the alternative fuel. However, the ethanol is expensive to dehydrate the dissolving water in Myanmar Market. Therefore, 95 percent of ethanol product is available in local market. The main purpose of the experiment is to test the engine performance compared with the gasoline and ethanol usage in rural areas. In this paper is intended to how to upgrade the engine performance when using the gasoline engine with ethanol, E10 and E20. According to the test, the result of using E10 and E20 is saved around 8.6 % fuel consumption more than the usage of gasoline and locally produced pure ethanol.
