This project proposes a study into alternative fuel sources and also questions the educational level of the general public concerning hybrid technology. A thorough background investigation was done on the current state of alternative power sources for automobiles with a concentration on hybrid technology. This background information was used to develop a survey to evaluate and educate the public. The results of this survey concluded that people educated about hybrid technology have a greater desire to learn about it.
