Abstract Bioethanol is a promising biofuel that can be used in the pure form or in the form of ethanol-gasoline blends (EGBs) as a transportation fuel. The combustion of bioethanol in petrol engines is associated with several problems, with bioethanol corrosion effects on metallic construction engine parts being one of the most serious ones. Electrochemical methods, such as electrochemical impedance spectroscopy, measurement of polarization characteristics (Tafel scan), etc., have been found to…
