Alternative Fuel Vehicles

Alternative fuels are clean fuels that are alternatives to gasoline and diesel, and create less air pollution. Alternative fuels such as methanol, ethanol, compressed natural gas, liquefied petroleum gas, propane, and electricity produce fewer tail pipe emissions than conventional gasoline and diesel fuel. Alternative fuels have a number of inherent properties that make them cleaner than conventional gasoline. In general, these fuels emit fewer hydrocarbons, so they are producing less smog. Emissions from electricity, natural gas, or alcohol-powered vehicles can be as much as 90 percent lower in ozone-forming hydrocarbons than emissions from vehicles fueled with conventional gasoline.
