Water Fuel and Biodiesel: Alternative to Gas

Apr 26, 2008
Today's rising gas prices haven't just impacted our ability to drive to and from work economically. Yes, gas prices are over three dollars a gallon these days, but it's not just we as individual drivers who are affected. In fact, rising gas prices have impacted everything from consumer goods prices to food prices, to just about anything we buy. They have significantly impacted our economy in a negative way.

In fact, rising gas prices have had an impact on everything from food prices to consumer goods; really, they impact just about everything we buy. In fact, rising gas prices have had a very negative impact on the economy as a whole.

There is perhaps a "positive" benefit to rising gas prices, though. That is that we have had to think about alternative fuels where we have not had to before. In fact, we've mindlessly relied on fossil fuels over the past generations, but have only given the briefest of glances to renewable energy sources or other alternative energy sources such as water fuel and biodiesel.

Today, though, these alternative fuel sources have come to the forefront, simply because we must pay attention to them.

Biodiesel fuels and water fuels are both renewable and environmentally friendly energy sources that we can fuel our cars with. These fuels are available now and can positively impact both the environment and our wallets.

Biodiesel fuels utilize plant sources such as corn to produce oil. The oil is then burned as a fuel source. Biodiesel can also re-use used cooking oils such as those discarded by restaurants; this is a great way to keep more waste out of landfills. Biodiesel fuels are completely renewable energy sources and can burn somewhat cleaner than fossil fuels can, so that they can be a much better alternative to fossil fuels such as gasoline to fuel cars with.

Water fuel is another way to stretch our fossil fuel resources. Although you do need to utilize gasoline to some extent with water fuel, you can use this technology to stretch your gasoline mileage much further.

With water fuel, mileage per gallon of gas roughly doubles versus that of gasoline alone. You install the conversion kit in your car and the electric current from a battery "burns" water so that you are presented with a very efficient fuel source. This technology has been available for quite some time, but it's becoming more popular now because customers need to get more out of each gallon of gas they use.

There are a couple of drawbacks to biodiesel fuel at present. Although biodiesel is renewable, it produces some pollution. In addition, there is some question about its usefulness as a renewable energy source because it has been suggested that more fossil fuel is used during biodiesel production than is actually saved by using biodiesel instead of gas. Because of this, water fuel may be a better renewable fuel source than biodiesel.

However, water conversion kits may not be available in every area, which would make biodiesel a fine alternative instead. This is especially true if your biodiesel would come from used cooking oils. And as technology gets better, biodiesel will likely become a much more efficient fuel source because it will no longer be manufactured by using fossil fuels. Instead, biodiesel will be produced by using alternative fuels instead.

Regardless of concerns such as the above, it's clear that our days of reliance on fossil fuels indiscriminately and as though they are endless and renewable are over. Rising gas prices may simply be a wake-up call to tell us we need to change our behavior.

Biodiesel fuels and water fuels are two alternative energy sources that can help us save the environment and our own pocketbooks as well.
