Abstract

Alternative fuels need to be introduced to our economy. The rising fossil fuel prices and heavy out put of pollution are visible signs that a new fuel is necessary to keep our transportation needs available.Team Pixar believes in a first step initiative that involves working with fleet vehicles such as taxis in order to solve this problem. In order to do this we suggest that new infrastructure be put in place just for fleet vehicles with there new fuel. We would like to combine two of the major four fuels we researched in order to have the best possible fuel. We thought electricity and compressed air are the best combination for fleet vehicles. Team Pixar also sought to provide information on four possible alternative fuels that can be used to see the possible advantages that each of these fuels can provide once put in place.
