Alternative Fuel Cars

Above you can see obvious reasons why diesel engines are not healthy for the environment, or for your wallet. However, two different types of engines for cars are currently available on the market, and ready to be used by citizens all over the country. You have probably heard of a “hybrid” car by now, which is a car that uses an engine that utilizes both oil and electricity in order to power the car. It also uses a smaller engine with lighter parts, so that that engine does not have to work as hard in order to move the car. The electric motor helps to power the car, thus allowing the engine to work less hard and waste less gas. Also, the energy used when you brake is recycled and put into the battery in a hybrid car.

In an electric car, there is an absence of an engine altogether. The engine is replaced by an electric motor, much like the one in a hybrid car. This electric motor is powered by a set of rechargeable batteries, so it removes the need for oil completely. This is obviously a plus, since the car will not emit dangerous chemicals into the air, and you won’t have to pay a high price for gas. In fact, a full charge for an electric car is said to cost as low as $2.00 to $4.00. This is amazing compared to the almost $100 dollars you spend filling up your diesel engine car
