    If you had to choose an alternative to gasoline, what would you choose? Feel free to post your reasons why. [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/new/smile.gif[/img]

    To help make your decision, here is a chart explaining what each alternative is:

    I'd have to go with hydrogen but only once we have enough alternative energy sources to really make it's production cleaner.

    E85 sounds great for now... too bad there's none that I can find in the suburbs of NYC and my 2001 car won't take it.

    In a few cases (depending on who the power to your house comes from) electric can be less desirable than gas. If they're using fossil fuels to generate the power that you plug the car into every night, you might actually be wasting more energy than you would if you just put those fossil fuels right into the car in the first place. Figured I'd mention it since they didn't.

    I remember a Dilbert cartoon from 2000, during the California electric crisis.

    Dogbert was on TV saying his electric company produces all its electricity with the aid of California environmentalists.

    The next panel showed two guys throwing a bound & gagged man into a furnace, while they were commenting, "These sure are getting hard to find!"

    A plug-in hybrid is something we can do now to good effect. The other options all have major infrastructure changes necessary to implement them.
