ALTERNATIVE FUEL SUPPLY. PROCEEDINGS OF THE 8TH EQUIPMENT MANAGEMENT WORKSHOP, MAY 28-31, 1990, DES MOINES, IOWA

This paper reviews the properties of the two predominant traditional fuels--gasoline and diesel--and contrasts those properties with those of the leading alternative fuels--methanol, ethanol, compressed natural gas, liquefied petroleum gas, and reformulated gasoline and reformulated diesel fuel.
