We need to invest in high speed trains, railroads, and select bus services that are environmentally friendly. Most of the battery-powered vehicles in use have lead or advanced lead acid batteries. The most common type of vehicle using ethanol is the flexible-fueled vehicle FFVwhich operates on either ethanol or gasoline or any combination of the two fuels. In the future, ethanol may have another role in transportation as a component of ethyl tertiary butyl ether ETBEa different type of oxygenate, but not an alternative fuel. Census Bureau from to was

Establish feedstock processing facilities to attract local fuel production plants. Some alternative fuel technologies currently available are biodiesel, compressed natural gas CNGethanol, electric, hydrogen, liquefied natural gas LNGand liquefied petroleum gas LPG in lieu of gasoline. Although they accounted for only 1. Energy Information Administration Consumption of Alternative Fuels in Vehicles by Fuel Type, shows that the alternate fuel usage for compressed natural gas followed by ethanol and propane is the leading alternative fuels consumed.

Give priority to counties not currently meeting federal air quality standards for fleets to include school buses, transit agencies and waste hauling trucks. Provide Fuel Quality Assurance Funding for the Department of Agriculture to help assure the quality of biofuels meets state and national standards. During combustion, the absence of aromatic compounds reduces the formation of polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbon PAH soot precursors. Inpropane vehicle converters were significantly impacted by EPA's addendum to Memorandum 1A, which limited the number of conversion kits certified for use, and led to a sharp decrease in the number of vehicle conversions. Also, none of the smog-forming contaminates are emitted.

The numbers increased most dramatically afterwhen the first flexible-fueled autos designed for M85 were commercially produced.

About half of the LPG vehicles made available in were conversions. Propane autogas is generated at the well alongside other natural gas and oil products. Tax incentives often help to defray costs. Introduction2 1.

LNG also allows for Alternative fuels initiative program. book refueling, but the cost of liquefaction and of well-insulated, pressurized, tanks Alternative fuels initiative program. book onboard storage adds to the cost of using LNG.

Subsequently, DOE created Clean Cities in to provide informational, technical, and financial resources to EPAct-regulated fleets and voluntary adopters of alternative fuels and vehicles.

The typical driving range for these EVs is 50 to miles, depending upon the vehicle's weight, number and type of batteries, and engineering and design features. Although the United States has an abundant supply of natural gas, there are currently only about 1, natural gas refueling stations as compared with more thanrefueling stations serving gasoline and diesel.

Alternative Fuel

NGVs have significantly fewer exhaust emissions than gasoline vehicles. In another transportation application, methanol is used to produce the oxygenate, methyl tertiary butyl ether MTBEwhich is added to gasoline to enhance octane levels and reduce emissions.

Production of battery-powered EVs will probably continue at a moderate pace, as improvements in battery technology help to increase ranges. Electric vehicles is the second leading alternative fuel technology but are not clean air technology.
