Unleaded gasoline is regular gasoline. Lead used to be added to gasoline to prevent engine knocking but the practice has been banned in most developed countries. 2nd Answer: There are some engines, a lot of them not in cars, that are made to use regular gasoline. They are designed so that the lead in regular old gasoline will build up on certain moving parts, and keep them sealed against engine pressures. Unleaded gas is not good for this type of engine, at all.

Usually they run alchohal, but in dirt trak cars, they might use regular gasoline. It depends on the racecar; Nascar cars use 110 octan leaded gasoline, Indy cars use pure methanol, and Drag cars use Nitro methan.

In the United States, unleaded regular gasoline is the most frequently used fuel in cars and small trucks.

The maintenance for hybrid is cars is similar to regular gasoline cars. You still need to do regular oil changes, but these can be done at larger intervals. Generally, hybrid cars require less maintenance, but make sure to check electric cords and connections

the Ford website and the ford escape owner's manual BOTH say to use REGULAR gasoline, so I would say no

Some hybrid cars have just as much power as regular cars. They use gasoline for power when it is needed, or the electric component can produce enough power.

Gasoline is a Mechanical energy because gasoline can make cars move and cars are moving things.

How much gasoline and diesel fuel do Americans use every year to fuel their vehicles?

User Avatar

No, all cars that are hybrids as of now are charged by a regular gasoline or diesel engine as opposed to AC. Some cars will have the capability eventually such as Chevrolet's Volt.
