No matter what people think about the Ford Mustang, it is seldom considered an efficient or an environment-friendly vehicle. However, a German LPG advocacy group and tuning shop Rollin' on Chrome have banded together to turn that perception around by producing a 300hp (228kW) LPG-fueled custom Mustang GT, which becomes a part of a growing number of alternative-fueled cars that are trying to provide the planet with cleaner rides.
Mounted on gigantic 22" wheels and a '3D Carbon' body kit, the car's appearance is far from being 'green,' and with its 300 hp (228 kW) engine it should be a lot more exhilarating to drive than a regular environment-friendly vehicle.
Still, the 'green' feature is in its fuel, LPG, which burns about 20% less carbon dioxide than gasoline and around 95% less nitric oxides (NOx) than a regular diesel.
Advocates of LPG also advertise the pollution prevention feature of the fuel; since it is gas it will just evaporate when spilled rather than contaminate the ground or water supply.
Alternative fuels such as biofuels and LPG have been gaining ground in popularity as oil and fuel prices skyrocket.
Although some worry that decreasing prices of oil may revive interest in traditional fossil fuels, biofuel sports car proven that power and fun are not compromised even with the absence of traditional fuels.
