With the price of oil rising at an alarming rate these days, and the impact using oil is having on our society and environment many people are considering alternative fuels and reductions in car use.
To reduce your car costs Liquid Petroleum Gas or LPG for short is today’s current craze mainly because it has avid government backing. It even has less tax on it then conventional car fuels. That means that saving gets passed on to you so it’s immediately beneficial for your wallet. Many people are now starting to convert their cars to LPG with many business fleets taking the first plunge. The only problem at the moment is finding a filling station that supplies the fuel which will hopefully be more frequent once more users switch and create demand.
Many people assume that a higher octane fuel is better for their engine. The problem is, if your car engine isn’t high performance, no amount of a high octane fuel is going to help. Reduce your car costs by switching to a lower octane fuel, having a higher octane fuel in your engine is not necessarily better and you’ll be throwing away good money on an expensive fuel.
Biofuel is another example of an eco friendly fuel alternative. When using Bioethanol car carbon dioxide emissions are reduced by at least 50%. This fuel is made from crops that can potentially create a new farming demand in rural areas. The increase in price does vary depending on where you live however and what government support you have but typically the fuel is only estimated to cost more because it takes more of it to run your car.
There are many different types of fuel alternatives available these days; some of these are environmentally friendly such as Biofuel and LPG.
