Oil and similar traditional fuel sources generate carbon monoxide and other harmful gases when used in vehicles and machines. This is slowly damaging our natural resources and ecology. Thus, it is critical to find such alternative sources that can replace oil but still provide high efficiency. In modern times, people have been searching for similar fuel sources. A newly found option is to use biofuels in place of oil.
