what we need to move forward more fuels
What We Need to Move ForwardMore Fuels
  • 170,000 U.S. gas stations, only 1,200 carry E85
  • Progress is being made
  • You can drive from Chicago to Kansas City and back — 1700 miles — fueled solely by E85
clean diesel lower sulfur content high mileage
Clean DieselLower Sulfur Content & High Mileage
  • Compared to their gasoline counterparts, the new generation of clean diesel vehicles offer much greater fuel economy while delivering better performance. Around the world, consumers are favoring advanced diesel technology.
  • Clean diesels power 40 percent of Europe’s new light duty motor vehicles.
  • Today’s clean diesel vehicles run more cleanly, thanks to new high-pressure fuel injection, combustion and exhaust after-treatment technologies.
  • A key factor in determining the success of these aftertreatment technologies was EPA’s 2001 decision to require dramatic sulfur reductions in diesel fuel.
  • On average, clean diesel vehicles achieve 20-40 percent better fuel economy than their gasoline-powered counterparts.

ethanol e 85 homegrown renewable
Ethanol (E-85)Homegrown & Renewable
  • Ethanol derived from corn, sugar cane – cellulosic on the way
  • E-85 is 85% ethanol and 15% gasoline
  • All vehicles on the road today can use a blend of up to 10% ethanol with gasoline without voiding warranties.
  • Of the 170,000 gas stations in America, about 1,200 sell E-85
  • Ethanol is renewable but contains less energy than gasoline
  • Because ethanol is more corrosive than gasoline, automakers need to use special materials for the gas line, gas tank, pumps, and injectors.

hybrid engines advanced batteries higher mileage
Hybrid EnginesAdvanced Batteries & Higher Mileage
  • Hybrid-electric vehicles refer to powertrains that use a battery-powered electric motor, a gasoline internal combustion engine, and a concept known as regenerative braking to power the vehicle
  • Regenerative braking systems, which recover energy that is otherwise wasted, allow hybrids to be especially fuel-efficient in stop-and-go city driving
  • Utilizing these hybrid technologies, fuel economy can be improved by up to 25 percent over conventional automobiles
  • At the moment, hybrids are more expensive than traditional gasoline engines
  • Automakers working hard to continue battery development and advancements
