Dave Stoltz is the owner of Pacific Flyer Engineering, a very successful company that specializes in restoring and customizing automobiles. Dave has had a lifetime of experience running vehicles on alcohol. He was born into a family that participated in a form of auto racing that has always used alcohol for fuel. Since the 1930s Midget and Sprint race cars have been powered exclusively by alcohol. Dave, like his father, always designed and built their own cars, including the engines. He has always known that alcohol is a superior fuel to gasoline. Through his own experience running ethanol in his street cars, he's known that an engine built to run only on ethanol will achieve equal or better mileage than an engine built to run on both gasoline and alcohol. When Dave heard to what extent the E-100 group was willing to go to prove, with California state testing and documentation, what he has always known, he had to get involved. With his knowledge of how to get the most out of an engine running on ethanol, Dave has become an important member of the team.
Chief Technology Officer
Jake Zadorozny is a young and motivated student in mechanical engineering at the University of Michigan. Working as an engineer in the automotive industry, he has a passion for cars and anything automotive related. As an avid car enthusiast he does anything from regular service to extensive repairs and modifications on his vehicles. He is an auto racer and is involved as an engineer/technician on a drag racing team. Jake does not want the internal combustion engine to be forced into extinction and believes that the problem is not the IC engine, but the fuel that it uses -- gasoline. Cars are way more than transportation. They are an extension of one's personality and character.
Cars allow someone to get away from daily problems and enjoy the pure driving experience. This pure experience is becoming less and less prevalent in today's automobiles. The internal combustion engine is one of the key driving experiences that make a vehicle enjoyable, anything from the sound, the smell, and the connection with that car.. E100 would allow the heart of the pure driving experience to live on while increasing performance and saving the planet simultaneously.
