Transportation systems and vehicles play an important role in modern life. They would not be possible without fuel. This handbook gives a comprehensive overview of various types of fuels used to power vehicles of all kinds and the processes to produce these fuels. The main focus is on automotive fuels, however, aviation and marine fuels are described as well as alternative and novel fuels, such as ethanol, methanol, natural gas and others.
The book is not only valuable for students and graduated scientists from various industries like oil and automobile companies, but also for journalists interested in this field.
