While the cost of a barrel of oil on the open market may fluctuate from day to day, there is no question that the overall trend is seeing prices raise higher and higher. But what can be done about it, After all, we have to use oil to run our machines and power our cars. Well, maybe not, at least not entirely. The interest in green gas alternatives goes up whenever oil prices spike.
The first step to reducing the need for oil is to make the current supply last longer. Driving more fuel efficient cars, not speeding and keeping our engines tuned are all a good start. More advanced possibilities to increase fuel economy rely on other technologies. These include such things as fuel tank additives, do it yourself kits, fuel line magnets and more. Simple changes like these have a positive impact on how much oil we use.
Regardless of what the hucksters out there will tell you, there is absolutely no conspiracy to repress such information. They like to hype up imaginary cover-ups to help sell their products; it sounds good and diverts your attention from spurious claims. That’s not to say all of the products are scams, they’re not. However, you have to be careful and do your due diligence before spending any money on any green gas products.
According to the critics, some of these green gas alternatives cannot work based on science. While hard and fast results are hard to come by, it does seem that some of the anecdotal evidence is accurate, though each situation may differ. In other words, those who are seeing real results don’t care if the critics want to pay more in the way of fuel consumption. A word of caution is in order. Be careful before making any green gas modifications to your vehicle as they could, potentially; void any existing manufacturer’s warranty.
Those that are really serious about green gas alternatives can consider buying a new vehicle. Hybrid cars still use some gasoline, but they combine other methods to get much better mileage. Diesel vehicles don’t use gasoline, and can run biodiesel where available. Electric vehicles don’t use any fuel at all and only require recharging. Fuel cell or hydrogen-powered vehicles show a lot of promise, but have not yet been produced for the public marketplace.
It can be easy to get discouraged with high oil prices, but there is no need to when you consider how many green gas alternatives there are. Not only do they do less damage to the environment, but they also do less damage to your pocketbook.
