Behavior of dry corrosion which is electrochemical reaction between Al-Mg-Si alloy 6063 and ethanol in gasoline has been investigated. Dry corrosion has not been observed in E3 (3% ethanol) and E10 (10% ethanol) at room temperature, but observed in E3 and E10 when a small amount of aluminum chloride had been added to them at room temperature. The higher solution temperature is, the more often the dry corrosion occurs. Dry corrosion has also been observed in the above solution environments in which 0.1% and 1% water contained. Occurrence of dry corrosion was detected by the area polarization method, which revealed that initiation and propagation of the dry corrosion corresponds to the decrease of anodic polarized resistance of 6063.
