Description:

The Alternative Motor Fuels Act (AMFA) encourages the production of motor vehicles that use ethanol, methanol, or natural gas fuels, either exclusively or as an alternate fuel in conjunction with gasoline or diesel fuel. This incentive gives a credit of up to 1.2 mpg toward an automobile manufacturers average fuel economy which helps it avoid penalties of the Corporate Average Fuel Economy (CAFE) standards.
