Save Money With Alternative Fuel

by Hunt Black

With petrol prices getting ever higher, are there any alternative fuel types for ATVs? Yes there are. ATVs generally run on standard unleaded fuel. Some ATVs, such as kids quads and sports quads, run on a mixture of unleaded and two stroke oil. However, for the high mileage user concerned about the cost of fuel, there are currently two alternatives ? diesel and LPG. There is a limited range of diesel ATVs on the market, but these are able to run on standard red diesel.

Question 8: Where can I find information on alternative fuel refueling facilities? Answer: AFDC Refueling Sites: A searchable database of refueling stations in the U.S. maintained by DOE’s Alternative Fuels Data Center. Maps and station details are available. Counts of Alternative Fuel Stations: Table of alternative fuel station counts by State and fuel type, from DOE’s Alternative Fuels Data Center. California Natural Gas Vehicle Coalition Station Locator: Lists and maps of natural gas fueling stations in CA, NV and AZ.top The MSRC generally has several programs to help pay for the higher cost of alternative fuel vehicles. In the past, the MSRC has provided co-funding to pay for the higher incremental cost of clean fuel transit buses, light- and heavy-duty vehicles, as well as fueling infrastructure. Please contact the MSRC for more information on these programs, or go to the proposal process page for information on the current Work Program.Liquefied Petroleum Gas (LPG) is a mixture of propane and butane.

Question 12: How do I convert alternative fuel consumption to gasoline-equivalent gallons (g-e-g’s)? Answer: To compute fuel consumption in terms of g-e-g’s, divide the heating value of the alternative fuel (Btu per native unit of fuel) by the heating value of gasoline. Then, multiply this result by the alternative fuel consumption value. For example, to convert 100 gallons of ethanol to g-e-g’s, multiply 0.661 (i.e., 76000/115000) by 100. EIA uses adjusted lower heating values to develop the conversion factors used in Table 10.Econoburn™ wood boilers are only available direct from our factory.

What are some of the common acronyms used on hybrids and other alternative fuel vehicles? HEV (Hybrid Electric Vehicles) – Used combination of conventional gasoline engine and high voltage electric battery. Currently the most widely used hybrid vehicles. TLEV (Transitional Low Emission Vehicles) – This is the least stringent emissions standard in California. TLEVs are phased out as of 2004. LEV (Low Emission Vehicles) – All new cars sold in California starting in 2004 will have at least a LEV or better emissions rating.Econoburn™ wood boilers are only available direct from our factory.

Are there alternative heating system purchase incentive programs I may be eligible for? Buying an Econoburn™ wood boiler may make you or your business eligible for certain state/federal tax rebates, or purchase incentive programs. You can check with your local state/federal tax and energy departments for more information.Alternative fuels are substantially nonpetroleum and yield energy security and environmental benefits. DOE currently recognizes the following as alternative fuels: The cities of Nashville and Knoxville have been designated “Clean Cities” under this federal program by the Department of Energy.
