    Iran may revive a gasoline rationing system with two rates, which was eliminated by the current government in May to cut consumption, the spokesman of Majlis Energy Commission said.   A new process for converting municipal waste, algae, corn stalks and similar material to gasoline, diesel and jet fuel is showing the same promise in larger plants as it did in laboratory-scale.

      The additives will be at least the mandatory minimum (thats not a bad thing! Its enough) and usually low prices mean high fuel turnaround so gas stays pretty fresh to go. I'd say you're not hurting anything by using it, but I'd be interested where they source (most) of their fuel if I made it a habit. Starting in January , California diesel fuel was required to meet a minimum lubricity specification as well. This fuel, commonly referred to as the CARB diesel, is mandatory for use in a variety of applications including both highway and off-road vehicles. The limits and applicability have evolved as .

    Where the Energy Goes: Gasoline Vehicles. Only about 12%–30% of the energy from the fuel you put in a conventional vehicle is used to move it down the road, depending on the drive rest of the energy is lost to engine and driveline inefficiencies or used to power accessories. Today, tens of thousands of Americans waited in gasoline lines -- as millions have done over the last several weeks. Many of you had to cancel holiday plans on Independence Day. Farmers and truckers have experienced shortages of diesel fuel. It is hard to get gasoline at any price -- .

Get this from a library. Mandatory energy conservation and gasoline and diesel fuel rationing: hearing before the Subcommittee on Energy Regulation of the Committee on Energy and Natural Resources, United States Senate, Ninety-sixth Congress, first session.

[United States. Congress. Senate. Committee on Energy and Natural Resources. This hearing on mandatory energy conservation and gasoline and diesel fuel rationing was conducted in response to the Energy Policy and Conservation Act passed in Statements were presented from Senators Domenici, Durkin, and Johnston and from Deputy Secretary John F.

O'Leary and Secretary James R. Schlesinger from the DOE. The amount of carbon dioxide released into the atmosphere by a vehicle is primarily determined by the carbon content of the fuel.

However, there is a small portion of the fuel that is not oxidized into carbon dioxide when the fuel is burned. The Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) has published information on carbon dioxide emissions from gasoline and diesel which takes the oxidation factor.

A scientist pumping unleaded gasoline into his diesel engine may sound like a typical example of absentmindedness.

But in the case of engineers at the Energy Department’s Argonne National Laboratory (ANL), this unconventional idea has some serious potential. A team of researchers at ANL, led by Steve Ciatti, is looking at the possibility of using gasoline to power diesel engines, thereby.

However, since mid diesel fuel prices have exceeded gasoline prices, with a price premium that has tended to increase. The last time regular grade gasoline sold for more than diesel was Aug As of Maregular grade gasoline sold for $ per gallon, 33 cents less than diesel at $ per gallon.

Compared to gasoline and diesel, other options may have more energy per unit weight, but none have more energy per unit volume. On an equivalent energy basis, motor gasoline (which contains up to 10% ethanol) was estimated to account for 99% of light-duty vehicle fuel consumption in Over half of the remaining 1% was from diesel; all other.

Energy density and the cost, weight, and size of onboard energy storage are important characteristics of fuels for transportation. Fuels that require large, heavy, or expensive storage can reduce the space available to convey people and freight, weigh down a vehicle (making it operate less efficiently), or make it too costly to operate, even after taking account of cheaper fuels.

The purpose of this study is to evaluate the technical and economic feasibility of producing and using biomass-based diesel and jet fuel in the United States. To achieve this goal, data on production, capacity, cost, market demand, and feedstock availability were gathered and analyzed.

What refiners do you get fuel from. Energy Petroleum Company is a Phillip 66 and Conoco branded Distributor. Many unbranded supply points are also available throughout Missouri and Illinois. What types of fuel does Energy sell.

Gasoline, Diesel, Biodiesel, Jet A, Avgas, K-1 Kerosene, E85, Ethanol Do you sell Winter Diesel fuel. Per gallon, diesel fuel contains about 12% more energy than gasoline, thus when burned in engines of comparable efficiency means that diesel powered vehicles should get about 12% better mileage, which is in the ball park.

As both gasohol and ethanol have far lower energy densities than gasoline, they will accomplish less work per unit of volume.

Natural gas is an odorless, gaseous mixture of hydrocarbons—predominantly made up of methane (CH4). It accounts for about 30% of the energy used in the United States.

About 40% of the fuel goes to electric power production and the remaining is split between residential and commercial uses, such as heating and cooking, and industrial uses. Although natural gas is a proven, reliable. Biodiesel Laws and Incentives State and federal governments enact laws and provide incentives to help build and maintain a market for biodiesel fuel and vehicles.

The use of biodiesel is required by the federal Renewable Fuel Standard. diesel fuel specification limiting the sulfur and aromatics in commercially available diesel fuel. Starting in JanuaryCalifornia diesel fuel was required to meet a minimum lubricity specification as well.

Congress enacted the Renewable Fuel Standard (RFS) as part of the Energy Policy Act and amended it in the Energy Independence and Security Act (EISA). The oil crisis began in October when the members of the Organization of Arab Petroleum Exporting Countries proclaimed an oil embargo was targeted at nations perceived as supporting Israel during the Yom Kippur War.

The initial nations targeted were Canada, Japan, the Netherlands, the United Kingdom and the United States with the embargo also later extended to. AEC, and its predecessor companies, have served independent fuel marketers for more than 45 years and continues to operate as Northern Alabama’s largest supplier of unbranded fuel products.
