The increasing of global energy demand and stringent pollution regulations have promoted research on alternative fuels (Le et aI, 2011). The production of ethanol can be enlarged in Malaysia national agriculture and might boost the Malaysian Economy. Physico-combustion properties of various gasoline ethanol blends were evaluated. There are 11 blends which are ElO E20, E30, E40, ESO, E60, E70, E80, E90 and ElOO as well as pure gasoline known as EO. The density, specific gravity, calorific value, energy density ,viscosity and thennal resistance of various components of the blends were investigated. This experiment applied a Portable Density Meter, Thennogravinometry Analysis (TGA), Consistometer and Bomb Calorimeter. Throughout this study, ethanol gasoline blends fuel has proved that the addition of ethanol in the fuels has the highest potential to become a renewable energy source. The optimum blend ratio is E20 where it has almost similar physical properties of gasoline. After going through a series of experiments and research, ethanol gasoline blends as renewable source has bright future due to its dependable physical and combustion properties.
