ABSTRACT
The article focuses on increase in Brazil's monthly consumption of ethanol in August, 2007 due to expansion of the flexible-fuel vehicle (FFV) market in the country. Consumption of the biofuel rose more than 1.4bn liters. It reports on increase in FFV sales in September, 2007 that was 86.3% of Brazil's total automobile sales, up from 79.6% in September, 2006. The on-road number of FFVs reflects potential ethanol demand. It foresees future potential for biodiesel industry in Brazil.
