Daniel Walker took a carj for a spin in downtown Chicago using gasoline refined from J coal. He said the fuel process is a partial answer to the energy crisis. “No stall, no sputter, no ping,” Walker said after the drive with the experimental fuel Monday. ‘‘lf we are to solve the energy problem, working toward a self-sufficient nation; if we are to I protect our air, keeping it safe, then we will have to develop the technology and build plants to Illinoisjconvcrt coal to oil and natural gas and gasoline,” he said. The gasoline Walker used cost $266 a gallon to produce and his brief spin in heavy traffic used about $66 worth. It was 92 octane — the equivalent of premium gasoline. The demonstration kicked off a conference on developing Illinois’ estimated 148 billion tons of unmined coal. The governor said he learned recently that gasoline could be derived from coal, so he ordered 15 gallons for demonstrations. Oil officials estimated that it I would take 7 to IO years to build a refinery in Illinois that would produce 100,000 barrels of fuel a day from coal. They said a potential 120 gallons of gasoline1 could be refined from one ton of coal. They estimated the cost of setting up such a project would be about $500 million, with a gallon of coal-gasoline selling for about 70 cents. ‘‘That might, look pretty cheap IO years from now,” said Ted Tom of the Amoco Oil Co. laboratory in Whiting, Ind. Experimental processes on a very limited scale were why Walker’s 15 gallons of gasoline cost about $4,000 to produce. T ho southern Illinois coal was processed into crude oil at Hydrocarbon Research at Trenton, N.J. The gasoline was refined at Amoco’s Whiting lab with small scale processing equipment. Walker said he believes it was the first time a passenger car has been run in the U. S. on gasoline* derived from coal. Want ad readers are always looking for a bargain. Sell your bargains now.
