An alternative fuel vehicle is a motor vehicle that runs on alternative fuel , an energy other than traditional petroleum fuels petrol or Diesel fuel ; and also refers to any technology of powering an engine that does not involve solely petroleum e. Because of a combination of factors, such as environmental concerns, high oil prices and the potential for peak oil , development of cleaner alternative fuels and advanced power systems for vehicles has become a high priority for many governments and vehicle manufacturers around the world. An environmental analysis extends beyond just the operating efficiency and emissions, especially if a technology sould be widely used. A life-cycle assessment of a vehicle involves production and post-use considerations. A cradle-to-cradle design is more important than a focus on a single factor such as the type of fuel.
