What is alternative fuel?

Alternative fuel is when something besides traditional gasoline is used to power a vehicle. The Toyota Hybrid models are the perfect example of vehicles that use alternative fuel. The engines in the cars feature an electric motor that works alongside a gas engine. They work together to produce a pool of power. You still will need to fuel these vehicles at a gas station, but you will do this less often.

What Toyota vehicles use alternative fuel?

The Toyota vehicles that use alternative fuel are the RAV4 Hybrid, Highlander Hybrid, Corolla Hybrid, Camry Hybrid, Avalon Hybrid, Mirai and the Prius. The engines in these vehicles are built for each specific model and get phenomenal gas mileage while helping reduce carbon emissions.

Both of these things are due to the way the electric motor and gasoline engine work together seamlessly. A few examples of how these two work together include accelerating after a stop sign, normal driving, and hard acceleration. When accelerating after a stop sign, the electric motor powers the engine because it is more efficient than using gasoline. However, when driving normally, gasoline is used because it is more efficient than using the electric motor. Finally, when accelerating hard, both the electric motor and the gas engine are working together to increase the power to the wheels.
