What you'll learn
  • Biofuels have been around longer than cars have, but cheap gasoline and diesel have long kept them on the fringe. Spikes in oil prices, and now global efforts to stave off the worst effects of climate change, have lent new urgency to the search for clean, renewable fuels. In this course learn about popular conventional alternative fuels like LNG, CNG, LPG and Methanol.
