Today’s modern cars run on different types of fuel. Each has its own pros and cons. Here are the different types of fuel that are commonly used by motorists.
Gasoline is a type of fossil fuel and is the most accessible and readily available for motorists. However, it is often considered as a temporary fuel because it is expensive, has limited resources, and has a negative effect in the environment. Gasoline produces carbon dioxide which contributes to the pollution.
However, it produces nitrous oxide that also adds to pollution. On the other hand, this type of fuel lasts longer and has better fuel efficiency than gasoline.
- Compressed Natural Gas
Cars that are built for this type of fuel can produce a significantly less emission than gas vehicles. However, fuel stations with compressed natural gas can only be found in select areas around the US.
- Liquefied Petroleum
However, in the US, the only way to use a propane vehicle is to convert a gas engine. Liquefied petroleum releases less toxins and does not add to the pollution like gasoline and diesel. A propane is also more affordable than gasoline.
In fact, a lot of cars can run solely on ethanol. Some cities encourage the use of ethanol as an additive to reduce emissions and pollutants caused by gasoline.
