When Considering Alternative Fuels, Equipment Compatibility is Essential

by OPW | Jun 05, 2013

21Ge-nozzleOver the past decade, alternative fuels have experienced a slow but steady growth within the United States. In large part, this growth is due to the United States Energy Policy Act of 2005, which laid out new thresholds for alternative fuel use with an eye on reducing the country's reliance on traditional fossil fuels. While the use of alternative fuels still pale in comparison to gasoline and diesel consumption, there is no doubt that alternative fuels will continue to build a niche in the country's motor-fuel pool.

The use of alternative fuels – such as ethanol, biodiesel and compressed natural gas (CNG) – offer many benefits to the end user as well as to the environment. However, choosing alternative fuel options does not come without its challenges. One of these challenges includes selecting only compatible equipment when storing, dispensing, metering and transporting these fuels.
