Nice video.  Is it a ethanol for automobile fuel?

Yep... For a variety of refineries in Central Florida I believe. The train offloads at the Port of Tampa for pipeline distribution across the area. Here's an article from back in 2011 when the facility was just getting built. https://www.freightwaves.com/news/tampa-port-develops-rail-for-ethanol-containers

Yes, the Kinder-Morgan terminal serves Florida with gasoline via pipelines.

From their website...


Kinder Morgan’s Central Florida Pipeline (CFPL) system consists of a 110-mile, 16-inch diameter petroleum pipeline that transports gasoline and batched denatured ethanol, and an 85-mile, 10-inch diameter petroleum pipeline that transports diesel fuel and jet fuel.  At Tampa, the CFPL system is capable of receiving those products from five terminals in the Port Tampa Bay area, and transporting them to delivery points in Orlando, Florida, including CFPL’s Orlando, Florida Terminal (also known as CFPL Taft Terminal). The 10-inch pipeline is the sole source of pipeline-supplied jet fuel to the Orlando International Airport.

Thanks. I imagine that the gasoline in US was pure. In Brazil we use gasoline with 25% of ethanol.  Almost all fleet of cars are flex and can use gasoline with etanol or pure ethanol. I always use pure ethanol since it is less expensive, pollute much less and comes from a green source of the sugar cane fields.
