“How can we ensure that our vehicles burn cleaner fuel?”

 

Vehicles gasoline is extremely pollutive. However, through a little bit of policy and technology, we can overcome this. If we were to mandate that all petroleum in vehicles only emit a certain amount of carbon per volumetric unit, it would force companies to innovate and invent/distribute cleaner fuel. This usually involves mixing or replacing petroleum in the vehicle with low-carbon alternatives such as biofuels. This is known as a Low Carbon Fuel Standard and is used in countries all over the world to control emissions.
