ALTERNATIVE FUELS EVALUATION SYSTEM FOR FLEET VEHICLES
This report describes a fuel-neutral, broad-based, automated evaluated system for comparing new alternative fuels and technologies to existing gasoline and diesel vehicles. Developed by Denver's Department of Health and Hospitals, the evaluation system provides fleet managers and policy makers with a tool for weighing the advantages and disadvantages of the major fuel alternatives (compressed natural gas, electricity, ethanol, methanol, LPG, and blended fuels). The results are available by category (e.g., emissions, national security), in a "box score" of sorts, which compresses all the categories against each other. The system does not provide a definitive statement on how various fuels compare to gasoline or diesel. Rather, it can produce any number of comparisons based on the best available data and a weighting priority as determined by the user.
