      Alternative Fuels:Alternative fuel, also known as non-conventional fuels, is any material or substance that can be used as a fuel, other than fossil fuels, or conventional fuels. The term "alternative fuels" usually refers to a source of which energy is renewable. Alternative fuels include: • Methanol and ethanol (Alcohol fuels). This book sheds light on three essential questions: 1. What is the likely supply of gasoline and diesel from oil worldwide to power light vehicles and trucks through ? 2. Could any other fuel economically replace gasoline? Will different parts of the world answer that question differently?

    Fuels and Fuel-Additives covers all stages and facets of the production of engine fuels as well as heating and fuel oils. The book begins with a quick portrait of the future of fuels and fuel production. Then, it sets forth the regulations controlling exhaust gas emissions and fuel quality from around the ://   Automobile Fuel Economy Standards: Impacts, Efficiency, and Alternatives Soren T.
