Captain Bob, the ole sea dog

Hi, i'm interested in alternative fules for transportation and I have some questions about Methanol, hopefully you'll be able to enlighten me!

Where do you get Methanol from, can it be produced from organic matter?

What is Methanols calorific value compared to Petrol? how much more Methanol do you have to burn to get the same power if you converted a petrol engine?

Why ar'nt we using methanol to fuel vehicles in the UK??? Is it more expensive than Petrol? What about tax, would it be taxed at the same rate as Petrol?

Thanks for your time
