Alcohol fuel

Rising energy prices and environmental problems have led to increased interest in alcohol as a fuel.

Alcohol has been used as a fuel in other points in history but fossil fuels have become the dominant energy resource for the modern world.

Much attention has been placed on the prospects of using ethanol as fuel for cars.

Alcohol fuels are usually of biological rather than petroleum sources.
