Experts all over the world have been looking for more alternative sources of energy. Aside from the fact that the primary sources of energy that we have today are likely to be depleted someday (considering that the demand for energy increases exponentially every year), there are sources that are not Earth-friendly. For example, fuel remains as the top choice in extracting energy, especially when it comes to transportation and generation of electricity. However, as we burn fuel in our vehicles, pollutants are inadvertently created as by-products of the process. As much as we need fuel in our daily lives, the continuous usage of fuel also hurts the environment.
Thus, the only apparent answer to this problem is to switch to green fuel, or fuel that has less contribution to air pollution. Biofuel, which can be extracted from biomass such as animal and plant remains, is being heralded as the future of energy because of its potential to minimize the creation of air pollutants in the atmosphere. However, some people have doubts on this, especially when it comes to its efficiency when used in a vehicle.
Should There Be A Problem If We Go Green?
Tests are being done to see if greener fuels can be used in vehicles instead of the traditional fuels. While the intention for the environment is good, there should be no compromise in terms of the efficiency. It is possible that a vehicle must burn a liter of green fuel or biofuel to meet an acceptable level of performance, while for the traditional fuel, the vehicle only needs to burn half of it. In the end, traditional fuel still has the edge over biofuel, but still, this does not mean that we should let go of using a greener fuel.
For one, there are tips you can follow to enhance your car’s fuel performance, whether you are using green fuel or not. Another thing you can do is to have a mixture of green fuel and traditional fuel. It may not be a good idea to use biofuel entirely for your vehicle for it to run smoothly. Instead, you can add biofuel with traditional fuel to enjoy both of their advantages together. By using biofuel, you can lessen your carbon footprint everywhere you go.
Support The Research For Greener And More Efficient Energy Source
Our hardworking scientists continue to find a workaround for the limitations of using green fuel. Of course, it would help them if we show our support to their research, perhaps even donating for their ongoing studies. Raising awareness for the negative effects of traditional fuel would be enough so that more people will consider switching to green fuel.
