As manufacturers and consumers gear towards a more sustainable motoring future, electric and hybrid cars are destined to be more commonplace on our roads. Where once EVs were ‘concept’ cars or the privilege of a select few more manufacturers are releasing mass produced EVs for the general market, so how do they all compare?
Mitsubishi’s 100% electric iMiev was launched in Japan in July 2009, with a Mitsubishi dealer primarily selling to fleet customers. The ‘Mitsubishi Innovative Electric Vehicle’ touched down on UK shores in January and is being hailed as the UK’s first mass-produced pure electric car. Read more
High gas prices have been a thorn in the side of all drivers for the last few years, as they continue to steadily rise. That is why alternative fuels such as ethanol have gained so much attention during the same period. Some believe that it can be the savior of America’s energy policy, while others see it as a fad that is made popular by subsidized corporate backers.
There is a lot of misinformation out there about ethanol. The reality of its role as a viable alternative to petroleum-based gasoline is a lot more complex. Read more
Hydrogen on demand has been discovered as the next reliable, fuel safe energy source. In fact, there are many reasons why hydrogen is an abundant energy source. First, out of all the elements, hydrogen is in fact the lightest element known.
Hydrogen however, cannot be found in the air easily as some other substances are. Instead, hydrogen can be found in a number of organic and inorganic substances such as fats, carbohydrates, and even water. In order to use hydrogen on demand in gas as a source of energy, it must be extracted out of the elements it is found in, using a hydrogen gas generator.
Will It Improve My Gas Mileage?
Hydrogen is not intended to be used on its own as an energy source; it is only used as an additive to gasoline and or diesel, to create an energy source that will substantially increase miles per gallon while driving. Read more
Performance chips for cars make cars perform better. Performance chips are among the best things that could be added to a computerized vehicle. These chips are so powerful and can accomplish pretty much anything. You could add a chip to your car that controlled the lights, or the radio, the battery, airbags or even a chip that controlled the engine. If performance chips were used on engines the control chips could be used to help save the environment. Adding a chip to an engine would help the environment by controlling the engines power and over all usage.
Another use enjoyed is usage in lights and other electronics. Read more
Toyota’s trusty compact RAV4 SUV has long been a segment leader, a crossover model that is sold in front- and all-wheel-drive configurations. Long powered by four and six cylinder engines, the newest model is now joined by an electric vehicle, a joint project of Toyota and Tesla Motors. With a sticker price of $49,800, the electrified RAV4 comes in priced well above the gas model, but with federal and state incentives and no gas fill up needed, the savings can be found elsewhere.
The Toyota RAV4 EV is powered by an AC induction motor with a fixed-gear open-differential trans-axle. Read more

Like any other industry, the Compressed Natural Gas Industry has evolved over time. Any country that has a significant number of CNG vehicles has, as a nation, openly promoted their development through government subsidies (handouts), informational programs and help with developing which CNG system brand is suited for any given group of vehicles and help in developing a CNG refilling station infrastructure.
It is not clear when the EPA got involved with CNG conversions or even why they did. Read more
Spray tanks are often used in many ways. These tanks may vary according to their different types. The classification of these tanks often depends on many factors such as the different materials used, the purpose for the spray tanks and the sizes. There are a variety of materials used in crafting different spray. The main factor for these materials is their ability to resist corrosion. Tanks often carry corrosive chemicals and other substances. Sometimes these tanks also carry pesticides.
Here are the different materials used in making spray tanks:

The world is getting greener – or at least that is the impression as the car manufacturers seem to be launching new, more environmentally-friendly models on an almost weekly basis.
But however much you want to save the planet, the main deciding factor when you buy your next new car will usually be financial. The more fuel you save, the more money you keep in your pocket. So how do hybrids and diesels, the great rivals in the race to better fuel consumption, compare? And how do you choose which is right for you?
Let’s take the older of these two technologies first: Diesel gets its name from Rudolf Diesel, who developed the basic processes used in the engines that bear his name way back in 1897.
Although diesel engines have a very long history, it is fair to say that over many decades, they did not really change very much. Read more
