It started with "C" after the fuel light in my old Mazda (14.5 gal tank) came on at 247 miles.

But once I got into it, it's definitely "A" with "all of the above" being secondary considerations.

Money savings, range increasement for longer trips, and altough some mods could increase tailpipe emissions they decrease the demand for fuel and then end up decreasing the emissions from the logistics background. The ability to run on alternative fuels also matters for me, due to the fuel supplies often being not so constant in certain locations.

Definitely all of the above, although B and D are probably the most influential for me, since I am an Environmental Studies major.

Doesn't Brazil use natural gas as their main vehicle fuel supply? Are there consistency issues with that?
