Gasoline Is So Last Century

There are many more efficient and environmentally friendly alternatives to gasoline aside from battery power. Some are already being used in vehicles currently on the road, while others are just emerging. Many alternative fuels are more often seen in medium- and heavy-duty commercial vehicles. However, application in light-duty conventional vehicles is growing.

Diesel, biodiesel, and ethanol are the most widely used alternative fuels. Hydrogen fuel cells have been researched for years and are now moving into commercial use. Natural gas and propane can be found in a handful of standard production vehicles.

The U.S. Department of Energy’s Alternative Fuel Data Center also note biobutanol, mimethyl ether, methanol, renewable hydrocarbon biofuels, and ammonia as emerging fuels.

In this slideshow, we will look at some of the vehicles that utilize these different forms of alternative fuel.
