Choosing an Alternative Fuel
Choosing an Alternative Fuel: Frequently Un-Asked Questions and the Answers You Need to Know. Choosing an Alternative Fuel can be a tricky business with sometimes surprising consequences. Remember when Ethanol seemed to be the best answer? Alternative Fuel choice has so many independent variables, how can you choose wisely?
Whether you are in policy-making and review, or vehicle fleet operations, there is no "one-fuel-fits-all" answer. Since much of the information available today does not address important consequences and implications resulting from fuel choice, what are the questions you need to ask so that you, your representatives, or fleet managers can choose wisely? And, do you know alternative fuel's best-kept secret in America?
We automatically think of aspects such as cost, environmental advantages, and energy security, but how do we add up the synergies of infrastructure expense, payload, range, supply chain, fill (or re-charge) time and many other factors?
If you want to get the right (fuel choice) answer, you have to be asking the right (use-case) questions. Come join us for a "Lunch and Learn" co-sponsored by W.C.T.A. and enterpriseSeattle to consider the options that are here today and explore how we can bridge our way to the fuels of the future. At the end of this session, you'll have a better understanding of how to qualify (or disqualify) various fuels that are vying to become the answer for our nation (or your fleet's) fueling needs.

Test Drives: The consistent comment heard is, "performance with AutoGas is equal to, or slightly better than, gasoline." Come see for yourself. Several AutoGas vehicles are available for test-drives and a look under the hood from 10:00 a.m. to 11:50 and again after lunch from 1:30 to 3:00 p.m. in the McKinstry garage.
