Electric Cars are Coal Burners

What is the Real Carbon Footprint Left by Electric Cars? Around the world, there is an electric car revolution occurring. Chevy, Toyota, Nissan, GM, Volkswagen, Renault, BMW, BYRD, and at least 20 other car manufacturers produce electric cars. Environmental activists, car manufacturers, and governme

Fuel Catalyst: We’ll Give You The Truth

There are two kinds of fuel catalysts: diesel fuel catalysts and petroleum fuel catalysts. But, there are a large number of products marketed with the word catalyst. The fact that marketers advertise non-catalysts as catalysts cause confusion. For those looking to improve the fuel mileage of an auto

Emissions from Alternative Fuels

Environmental Impact of “Clean” Fuels from Beginning of Life Cycle to Combustion Emissions from alternative fuels may actually exceed those of fossil fuels. Though used synonymously, “alternative” fuels and “clean” fuels are not the same. The adjective clean — with respect to fossil fu

Life Cycle of Coal Versus Natural Gas

The life cycle of coal determines its carbon footprint. Its lifecycle is what determines whether or not it is a clean fossil fuel or a dirty fossil fuel. The exact same can be said for natural gas. Each fossil fuel has a different life cycle. The extraction/production; refining/conditioning; transpo

Energy Density of Alternative Fuels

Why Petroleum, Diesel, and Coal are Here to Stay Not all fuels are equal. The energy density of alternative fuels is particularly low. The sum of energy in a gallon of diesel, for example, is about 10 percent higher than the energy in a gallon of gasoline.  There is a causal correlation between ene

Here Are The Diesel Truck Miles Per Gallon (MPG)

The MPG of Diesel Trucks Largely Unknown. And, Varies Greatly Based on a Number of Factors The miles per gallon of diesel trucks is anyone’s guess. Vast sums of Information is available with respect to the MPG of passenger light-duty trucks. The Environmental Protection Agency has policies in plac

Brilliant Ways To Use Diesel MPG vs Gas

Diesel Engines far More Fuel Efficient than Gasoline Counterparts, but Why? Diesel engines are considerably more efficient than gasoline engines. The miles per gallon of a diesel engine is 30 – 35 percent better than a comparable gasoline engine. The reason why compression engines are more eff

Biofuels May Not Be the Answer, Turns Out

First, Second, and Third Generation Biofuels All Hamstrung by Insurmountable Issues The name itself, biofuel, implies a clean-burning fuel. Made from crop fats and oils; biomass; or algae, the name makes biofuel sound like it would pollute less. The assumption has been — in relation to fossil fuel
