Where can I get information about alternative fuels or alternative fuel vehicles?
EPA's Office of Transportation and Air Quality (OTAQ) Alternative Fuels Web site "provides links to information about alternative fuel conversions, which are vehicles that are modified to run on a different fuel than the one for which they were designed. Most conversions involve switching gasoline or diesel vehicles to operate instead on a gaseous fuel such as natural gas or propane, an alcohol fuel, or electricity." Information may be found here: http://www.epa.gov/otaq/consumer/fuels/altfuels/altfuels.htm
Here are a few more Web pages with additional information:
