When cars were first founded, they were extremely expensive and only the rich owned them. As production of cars increased and became cheaper, people started buying them. At the time people used horses and carriages to get from point A to point B. For long distance people used trains. This was good but it wasn’t as convenient as a car. Gas was very cheap and cars became very popular.
Further, cars can be driven anywhere. There was nothing as convenient as a car. The primary sources of fuel were petrol and diesel. Petrol and diesel were generally same. They both are made out of crude oil. The levels of emission, engine power, speed and efficiency differed from a petrol and diesel engine. Diesel engines had a high emission rate and the engine vibrations were high but today these are highly controlled. Further Diesel engines were used on trucks, buses and large vehicles in general. This is because diesel vehicles have high levels of torque or pulling power compared to petrol engines which was not as powerful.
These vehicles even have vinyl stickers noting their size Crude is oil is very important for the daily operations of the world. Crude oil is found underground. The oil is extracted from the ground and refined in to petrol diesel and even kerosene oil. The oil can easily ignite. When it was identified that the crude oil we use was limited, people started searching for alternative fuel sources. Cars started becoming efficient and gas prices rose.There are many advantages and disadvantages of using gas. Gas is considered a fuel source that can run many machineries. The earliest cars, used liters and liters of gas. They weren’t as efficient.
This continued until the 1970s where the world started releasing that fuel was a limited resource. It’s not something like getting new tires or stickers printing for your car. After travelling a certain mileage or distance, a car needs to refuel. Fuel for the car is like water for us. Without it, the car won’t run.Since the 2000s electrical vehicles have been increasing. Companies such as Tesla, Nissan and BMW have jumped into the electrical vehicle band wagon. The number of electric vehicles sold is slowly but surely growing. Further, many people are interested in purchasing an electric vehicle. Nissan’s Leaf is one of the best-selling electric vehicles and Tesla have begun production of their long-awaited model 3, which is planned to release in 2018. With these vehicles coming out, it seems the reliance on petrol and diesel will soon diminish.
