Interview Highlights
  • Most cars can be converted to ethanol.
  • They can run on ethanol or gasoline or any mixture in between.
  • Diesel cars can be converted to run on biodiesel or vegetable oil.
  • Ethanol is made in the United States and made from plant matter. Typically it is made from corn in this country but they are working on using other material now.
  • There are also government incentives for producers of ethanol.
  • The initial cost of the conversion kit is about $800.
  • On the East Coast ethanol costs about 25 cents less than regular gas.
  • In the Midwest it is about 50% less than the cost of gas.
  • Some people are able to pay off the $800 in a few months with savings.
  • The Veggie car can also run on regular diesel gas if biodiesel is not available.
  • He has been doing this since 2006.
  • He has a degree from West Virginia University in Environmental and Natural Resource Economics and he is also a certified ASE auto mechanic.
  • He sells by web and sends it out with instructions. It is easy to install for most mechanics.
Alternative Vehicles and Fuel Resources
Find A Local Filing Station
Does your car take a special kind of fuel? You can locate a station that by clicking on http://www.afdc.energy.gov/afdc/locator/stations/ They offer searches for Biodiesel, Compressed Natural Gas, Electric, Ethanol, Hydrogen, Liquefied Natural Gas and Liquefied Petroleum Gas. They also allow for a search within a specific mileage amount.

Get The Training
Like conventional vehicles, alternative fuel vehicles (AFVs) require proper maintenance. That's why it is important to have trained technicians to properly maintain and service AFVs. Technicians must understand the differences between various fuels and fuel systems and have a good understanding of maintenance schedules and AFVs components. Original equipment manufacturers (OEMs) fully back the alternative fuel vehicles they produce with standard warranties, adequate parts inventory, and trained technicians. And training classes are available for mechanics wishing to enter the field. The following organizations offer technician training for alternative fuel vehicles. To locate Technician Training for Alternative Fuels go to http://www.afdc.energy.gov/afdc/vehicles/technician_training.html It links you with a variety of training programs from community colleges to alternative fuel institutes.

The Latest Technologies
The Vehicle Technologies Program supports the mission of the U.S. Department of Energy, Office of Energy Efficiency and Renewable Energy, to strengthen America's energy security, environmental quality, and economic vitality through public-private partnerships that:
  • Enhance energy efficiency and productivity.
  • Bring clean, reliable, and affordable energy technologies to the marketplace.
  • Make a difference in the everyday lives of Americans by enhancing their energy choices and their quality of life.
To that end, Vehicle Technologies Program professionals work with industry leaders to develop and deploy advanced transportation technologies that could achieve significant improvements in vehicle fuel efficiency and displace oil with other fuels that ultimately can be domestically produced in a clean and cost-competitive manner. Program activities include research, development, demonstration, testing, technology validation, technology transfer, and education. You can learn more than you ever thought possible regarding the latest in these exciting new technologies.

Hybrid and Vehicle Systems
The Vehicle Technologies Program is developing more energy efficient and environmentally friendly highway transportation technologies that will enable America to use less petroleum. Some of the information they offer include:
  • Hybrid Electric Vehicles: Hybrid electric vehicles (HEVs) combine the internal combustion engine of a conventional vehicle with the high-voltage battery and electric motor of an electric vehicle. As a result, HEVs can achieve twice the fuel economy of conventional vehicles. In combination, these attributes offer consumers the extended range and rapid refueling they expect from a conventional vehicle, as well as much of the energy and environmental benefits of an electric vehicle. HEVs are inherently flexible, so they can be used in a wide range of applications - from personal transportation to commercial hauling.
  • Plug-in Hybrid Vehicles: A plug-in hybrid electric vehicle (PHEV) combines the propulsion capabilities of a traditional combustion engine with an electric motor. The PHEV uses essentially the same technology as an HEV but uses much larger high-voltage batteries to power the electric motor and has a longer all-electric range. But, unlike the batteries in the HEV, which are recharged by only the internal combustion engine, and other technologies, the batteries in PHEVs can also be recharged by using an external power source, such as a home electrical outlet.

Educational Opportunities
CTo encourage the next generation, the Department sponsors many different educational competitions and programs to encourage students into the transportation sector. The EcoCar: The Next Challenge is a three year competition to reengineer a Saturn Vue. Automotive X Prize is an educational outreach program aimed at engaging students (k-12) and the public in learning about advanced, energy-efficient vehicles. Graduate Automotive Technology Education (GATE) trains college students at nine universities about fuel cells, hybrid electric vehicle drivetrains and control systems, lightweight materials, direct-injection engines, and advanced energy storage. Hydrogen Education seeks to educate people about Hydrogen Fuel Cell Technologies. To learn more about these education opportunities go to http://www1.eere.energy.gov/vehiclesandfuels/deployment/education/index.html For more information contact DOE Office of Energy Efficiency and Renewable Energy's (EERE) Information Center at 877-337-3463; http://www.eere.energy.gov/
Money, Money, Money
The U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) Office of Energy Efficiency and Renewable Energy (EERE) provides funding opportunities for advanced vehicle technology projects that are aimed at removing technical and cost barriers. Much of the funding available to the Vehicle Technologies Program is distributed to private firms, educational institutions, nonprofit organizations, state and local governments, Native American organizations, and individuals, through competitive solicitations. DOE is strongly committed to partnerships to help ensure the eventual market acceptance of the technologies being developed. New solicitations are announced regularly.
