Sizing Up Alternative Fuels

We have all asked it - if gasoline is getting so expensive, surely there must be other alternatives?

Popular Mechanics takes a look.

I haven't had a chance to read it yet, but I hope to do so and have some comments up by Monday.

I am a big supporter of alternate fuels, especially since they are a legal requirement in my country. (Brazil) I can appreciate that the US is also a major producer of bioethanol, but I believe that there should be a bigger incentive both through legislation and the media (in an effort to educate the american people). We must break off this dependence on standard fuels and make an effort to improve our environment. There are two alternatives that I am aware of that provide equal or better performance then standard fuel and are a gigantic improvement in lowering emissions. Those are bio-ethanol and "Cleaner Diesel". I am working on the PR campaign (I work for Fleishman Hillard)of the "Cleaner Disel", which puts me in a position to inform others. So I will be glad to give you some further info on the subject. As a last remark I have to say that, given that the US government refuses to sign the Kioto Agreement, the least they can do is invest in educating their people about the benefits of alternate fuels, as well as continue to invest in the required technology.
