A Guide to Alternative Car Fuels

What do the following have in common: hydrogen, electricity, biodiesel, natural gas, propane, compressed air? Yes, they are all types of energy, and as well as that, they can all be used as fuel for vehicles. Gone are the days when motorists had to choose between diesel and petroleum for fuelling their cars. We now live in an age where we can embrace a large number of greener alternatives which not only are far better for the environment, but can often be cheaper than the high-emission fuel sources of old.

For environmentally conscious motorists, there is a vast array of fuel options other than petrol and diesel. It’s simply a matter of deciding which one is best suited to you, based upon variances in cost, availability and environmental impact. If you own a large vehicle such as a truck or Jeep, for instance, an energy-dense fuel such as propane or liquefied natural gas is a great alternative to consider. Southside Motor Factors (www.smf.ie) created this infographic which explores the pros and cons of 10 of the leading car fuel alternatives to diesel and petroleum. Check it out below!
