On March 26, 2015, Representative Todd Young (R-IN) introduced H.R. 1665, the Alternative Fuel Tax Parity Act, to amend the Internal Revenue Code of 1986 to equalize the excise tax on liquefied natural gas (LNG) and liquefied petroleum gas (propane). This legislation would attach federal tax parities for LNG and propane to the Alternative Fuel Tax Credit (AFTC) that currently covers alternative fuel mixtures, alcohol fuel, and biodiesel. The AFTC has expired and is awaiting renewal. If H.R. 1665 is attached to the AFTC, LNG and propane would be taxed based on their energy output rather than volume, changing the tax on LNG from 24.3 cents-per-gallon to 14.1 cents-per-gallon and the tax on propane from 18.3 cents-per-gallon to 13.2 cents-per-gallon. The bill is intended to level the playing field by taxing LNG and propane at the same energy based rate as gasoline. Gasoline is currently taxed at 18.3 cents-per-gallon.

Additives for Fuel Economy
In our time, the possession of a private vehicle is costly, especially if it does not participate in any business processes. The main item of expenditure is not even wear and replacement of various parts, but high prices for fuel. The situation is complicated by the fact that not all engines consume fuel sparingly. Therefore, car owners have to look for some method to save their money. One of them is using special fuel additives. Generally speaking, fuel additives have both advantages and disadvantages. The...
The structure of the financial expenses of automotive businesses and boiler plants is quite varied, though it still allows to identify the main expenditures. First of all, it is the fuel, which accounts for no less than 40% of all costs. Fuel homogenization devices are designed to increase the quality of combustion, thereby saving resources. Homogenized fuel features good performance, burns cleaner, increases the efficiency of boilers and has a sparing effect on the environment. How to make homogenized fuel? Gen...
Sample Preparation for Refuse Derived Fuels
Plastic, wood and shredded waste, are in times of rising crude oil prices very interesting additions to the classic fuels. Especially in the cement industry, the energy rich fractions from conditioning processes are readily burned along. Important here is the analytical evaluation of the materials. Refuse derived fuels: Plastic, wood and shredded waste: Here are some examples of more or less well sorted fractions. Here the spectrum spans blends like can be seen here: pure plastic waste or even wood. Common for...
Hydrodynamic additive mixing is defined by hashing of molecules
Additives and components dissolution in liquids are explained by hashing of molecules of different substances and grades. It is essential that the volume of a mix can differ from the sum of volumes of unmixed substances that testifies various compactness of molecular systems. So, at mixture of 100 cm of water and 100 cm of alcohol turn out to a total of 196 cm of a mix: in a mix of a molecule were distributed more compactly, than earlier. Process of additive mixing is defined by the sizes and a form of material...
Additives mixing effect fuel consumption
Additives are an instrument of fuel operational development properties which can’t be provided with the previous stages of fuel producing. They lead to product correction, instead of participate in the main method of production. Their efficiency is caused by chemical structure, structure of a basic base, mutual influence and additives mixing process. Improvers which affect some parameters of basic fuel are called multipurpose. The structure of these additives includes some multi directional components for...
