Alternative Fuels

Print

Below are some alternatives to gasoline.

Ethanol

Ethanol is an alcohol-based fuel made by fermenting and distilling starch crops, such as corn.

Diesel

Diesel engines are more powerful and 30-35% more fuel-efficient than gasoline engines.

Natural Gas

Natural gas, a fossil fuel comprised mostly of methane, is one of the cleanest burning alternative fuels. It can be used in the form of compressed natural gas (CNG) or liquefied natural gas (LNG) to fuel cars and trucks.

Propane

Propane or liquefied petroleum gas (LPG) is a clean-burning fossil fuel that can be used to power internal combustion engines.

Biodiesel

Biodiesel is a form of diesel fuel manufactured from vegetable oils, animal fats, or recycled restaurant greases. It is safe, biodegradable, and produces less air pollutants than petroleum-based diesel.
