Other fossil fuels (natural gas, propane, and methanol) can be used as transportation fuels as well but require a more complicated storage system. The main issue concerning the large-scale uses of alternative vehicle fuels is the large capital investments required in distribution facilities as compared with Cost effectiveness of converting to alternative motor vehicle fuels book fuels.

Technologies for Reducing Fuel Consumption in Compression-Ignition Diesel Engines. INTRODUCTION. The compression-ignition (CI) diesel engine has long been used in the over-the-road, heavy-duty-vehicle sector of trucks and buses in the United States and is recognized as the most fuel-efficient internal combustion engine.

Cost-effective (rentable) - cost-effectiveness shall be determined in the standardized approach established by the Fleetwise Task Force consistent with the methodology in Appendix B of the Motor Vehicle Policy.

An alternative fuel vehicle will be considered cost-effective when it delivers a life cycle cost equal to or lower than the equivalent. Alternative fuels such as natural gas, propane, and electricity have very different sources and distribution, and Cost effectiveness of converting to alternative motor vehicle fuels book add resilience to the fuel supply through redundancy.

However, it is important to examine the inter-dependencies of these fuels and timing that may present vulnerabilities during a hurricane. The certification is based on emis- sions compliance for a given class of vehicle.

• The cost-effectiveness of an alternative fuels program depends on many variables, including bus size, us- age, engine option, ftiel economy (for both the conventional and alternative-fueled units), fuel price differ- ential, federal and state fuel taxing.

Comparing the social costs of biofuels and fossil fuels: A case study of Vietnam there are concerns about its economic viability. In this paper we focus on the cost-effectiveness of fuels, i.e., we compare the social costs of biofuels and fossil fuels for a functional unit defined as Cited by: vehicle fuel also offers significant cost savings when compared to the market price of gasoline or diesel on a per gallon equivalent basis as the market price of natural gas has consistently remained lower than that of the traditional fuels over the past several years.

A comparison of the carbon cycle for biofuels (a renewable alternative fuel for vehicles) and fossil fuels is provided in Figure 1. When plants are grown to replace those converted to biofuels, the carbon moves in a short-term, balanced cycle and does not increase the overall concentration of CO 2 in the atmosphere.

However, the carbon cycle for fossil fuels requires millions of years to complete. Nov 01,  · In the context of analyzing options for alternative fuel use, cost-effectiveness is demonstrated when the additional cost of either converting the vehicle to use an alternative fuel or acquiring a factory-produced alternative fuel vehicle will be recovered in the form of fuel savings, environmental benefits, or visible leadership benefits over.

From an energy perspective, methanol is one of the most promising long-term alternative fuels for motor vehicles. It can be made from natural gas now and from coal later. One major practical problem is that motor vehicle consumption for a fuel has to reach 10 percent of the present market to create an economically viable free market (Society of.
