Refuelling / Recharging

Most strategies to reduce greenhouse gas emissions from vehicles involve reducing fuel consumption. Reductions in air toxic emissions tend to focus on vehicle technologies. Using a cleaner burning, less emissions intensive fuel represents another important emissions reduction strategy.

Several of the lowest emission fuels – biodiesel, E85 and renewable electricity – are viable transport options today. Others are still emerging: hydrogen, compressed air and other fuels may each play a role in transport in the future.

‘Drop-in’ fuels such as E10 and B20 may be used in most conventional vehicles today, lowering their emissions and starting the transition to very low emission fuels.

Many dedicated vehicles can use electricity, Compressed Natrual Gas (CNG) or LPG. Converting vehicles to run on alternative fuels is also possible.

Some fuels, including biodiesel, CNG, Liquefied Natural Gas (LNG) and electricity, may require you to install home or depot based facilities.
