  • American Lung Association Clean Air Choice: Clean Fuels: Propane
    Agency a typical four horsepower gasoline lawnmower engine generates almost six times as much volatile organic compound VOCs per hour of use as a typical car Converting small utility engines such as lawnmowers to burn propane can reduce emissions of ozone precursors by one third and increase fuel economy by 14 percent What are other benefits of Propane Energy Security the majority of propane used in the U S today

    the infrastructure needed to ensure widespread use of EVs We are proud to partner with Drive Electric Minnesota Drive Electric Illinois and other local initiatives to help enable this Clean Air Choice for drivers What are Hybrid Electric Plug in Hybrid Electric vehicles Hybrids are vehicles that combine an internal combustion engine with an electric motor as the power source The electric motor and battery storage dramatically increase the fuel economy in comparison to a standard gasoline burning engine Hybrids can experience an increase up to 30 percent in fuel economy Today there are three categories of hybrid mild full and plug in Mild the electric drive motor assists the fuel engine when extra power is needed However the electric drive motor is not capable of powering the vehicle by itself Full this model adds a battery system with the electric drive motor and the internal combustion engine allowing the hybrid vehicle to run on the electric motor alone under certain operating conditions Plug In Plug in Hybrid Electric Vehicles PHEVS have a very large high capacity battery bank that can be re charged by plugging in to normal household current or by using the on board charging capabilities of normal hybrids The battery capacity is strong enough that the internal combustion engine is the backup while the battery takes main stage in producing power to the vehicle Why are Hybrid Electric and Plug in Hybrid Electric vehicles Clean Air Choices Depending on the model hybrid vehicles can reduce smog pollution by 90 percent or more in comparison to the cleanest conventional vehicles today Plus hybrids will cut emission of global warming pollutants by a third to a half with the future hybrid models aiming to reduce global warming pollutants by even more Also with renewable technology advancements such as

  • American Lung Association Clean Air Choice: Clean Fuels: Biodiesel Frequently Asked Questions
    a very early form of biodiesel Rudolf Diesel was eager to utilize vegetable oils as a form of fuel in the hopes of supporting agriculture in the countries that would rely heavily on the use of the diesel engine Diesel vehicles operate by compression ignition This means the diesel fuel is injected into the combustion chamber containing compressed air causing the fuel to self ignite Diesel engines run solely on diesel fuels including biodiesel and ultra low sulfur diesel A growing selection of clean diesel vehicles is now available to consumers and fleets Today s diesel vehicles are certified to the same stringent federal and California emissions standards as gasoline cars pickups and SUVs and often get more than 20 percent more miles per gallon than a comparable gasoline engine Is my diesel vehicle compatible with biodiesel Biodiesel can be used in any diesel engine with little to no modifications to the engine or the fuel system Is there a concern that biodiesel will gel in colder climates When properly blended for winter use blends up to 20 percent B20 can be used in cold climates This has been proven in our region with municipal snowplows heavy trucks and even fire engines using biodiesel year round Will using biodiesel void a vehicle warranty No Federal law prohibits the voiding of a warranty just because biodiesel was used In fact many major vehicle manufacturers have stated formally that the use of biodiesel blends up to B20 20 percent will not void their parts and workmanship warranties The only instance in which a vehicle warranty would be voided would be if an engine experienced a failure caused by external conditions such as bad diesel fuel How does biodiesel compare to petroleum diesel in terms of performance If B20 is used there is no noticeable difference in power and torque however fuel economy could decrease by 1 2 depending on the petroleum diesel blended with Most users report little difference between B20 and the No 2 diesel and as biodiesel blend levels decrease performance differences are nearly diminished between the two Typically biodiesel B100 contains 8 less energy per gallon than No 2 diesel in the United States This difference is caused by an 11 increase in oxygen by weight in biodiesel which allows it to burn more cleanly Back to top Lesson Three How Much How much energy does it take to produce biodiesel According to the latest U S Department of Energy facts cleaner burning biodiesel provides 5 5 units of energy for every one unit expended in production the greatest energy return of any fuel approved for use as a legal motor fuel How much biodiesel doesthe U S consume In 2013 biodiesel consumption in the U S set a new record reaching approximately 1 8 billion gallons How many soybeans does it take One bushel of soybeans 60 pounds yields about 1 44 gallons of B100 biodiesel and 44 pounds of animal feed Back to top Lesson Four The
