  • CAFE Standards

    771 words - 4 pages

    In 1975, Congress enacted Corporate Average Fuel Economy (CAFE) regulations, in an attempt to reduce gasoline consumption in the wake of the 1973 Arab Oil Embargo. These regulations set a minimum for the average mile per gallon that certain types of automobiles receive. Current CAFE standards require an average of 27.2 miles per gallon (mpg) for cars and 21.6 mpg for light trucks. Despite its noble intentions and environmental concern, the CAFÉ standards have been more than ineffective and have done more to harm society than to help. The initial thought behind the introduction of CAFE stan

    Gasohol in motorbikes? Q. Can the new gasohol fuel be used in motorbikes? A. Gasohol can be used in all car engines manufactured in Thailand since 1995. However, we do not recommend it be used in motorcycles. The reason for this is that cars made in Thailand in the past 10 years are all equipped with fuel injectors, not carburetors. The Fuel Research Department of the Petroleum Authority of Thailand (PTT) researched the use of gasohol only in fuel-injected engines. We are therefore not sure whether the seals in carburetors - as in pre-1995 cars and as still fitted to most motorcycles -

    I. Energy policy has become increasingly more important to our country in the past several years. Issues such as global warming have brought up a need for cleaner, more efficient ways of producing energy to power our homes, businesses, and automobiles. Currently, very few steps are being taken to shift our country to alternative fuel sources. In 2001, a study showed that 52% of our nation was still being powered by coal, while only 2% was powered by renewable resources and only 6% being powered with hydro-electric power plants. With rising population and power demands, non-renewable fuel sou

    The End Of Nascar

    The End of NASCAR Most people are familiar with a particular drink, known as white lightning. If that’s the case, most have either heard of it or even had a drink of it. But what most don’t know is white lightning played a big part in the sport of NASCAR. How is that possible, one might ask. The history of NASCAR can be traced way back to 1794, which happened to be during the Whiskey Rebellion. The government had put a tax on whiskey, which upset farmers, and instead of paying for whiskey, the farmers decided to brew their own. Their home brew became known as moonshine, because it would glist

    Should University Students Have their Own Cars? Some students feel that a motor vehicle is an absolute necessity. They say that having a car makes life easier and gives them freedom to travel wherever they want. I completely disagree with this idea. Owning a car while in university is a waste of money and actually causes more problems than it solves. First of all, let's talk about money. On the average, students work twenty hours a week at $7.00 an hour. From their wages, they must pay for food, housing and tuition. A typical used car costs between $5000 and $9000. In addition to th

    According to me, sustainability has different implications for different businesses, but all of them revolve around one central thought: long-term value creation. A process or activity becomes sustainable when all the issues and costs associated with it have been taken into account and subsequently dealt with internally. For example, disposal of car batteries (containing a lot of toxic substances) creates many environmental and health problems for people who had nothing to do with the battery in the first place. As a result, the actual cost of the battery in socio-economic terms is much highe
