The expansion of the alternative fuel business has its advantages as alternative fuels have less of an impact on the environment and the fuel burns cleaner.

This is why the oil companies and refineries are beginning to expand their alternative fuel options, they must do this in order to keep up with public interest.

The big car companies are also expanding into the alternative fuel market. These companies are building more vehicles that can run on ethanol, electricity, propane and E85 fuel. In 1998, the Ford Motor Company committed $1 billion towards expanding their production of alternative fuel vehicles.

Market expansion has occurred in CNG, propane, ethanol, and biodiesel, and also in battery-electric power. This expansion into these areas of alternative fuel requires new training when it comes to making repairs to vehicles that run on these alternative fuels.

As more people are purchasing alternative fuel vehicles, they are also demanding easy accessibility to the fuels that are needed to run them.
