Diesel, hybrid yes; ethanol not yet by ProQuest


Findings from the consumer perspective: * For all three vehicle types, the advanced diesel offers the highest savings over the life of the vehicle among the options considered. * The hybrid option has smaller but still considerable savings for SUV applications ($1,066), moderate savings for pick-up applications ($505), but minimal savings over the life of the vehicle for car owners ($198). * The vehicles operating on E85 cost all three owners more over the vehicle life, with a greater net cost burden for larger vehicles and increased fuel consumption.
