    Mayor Greg Ballard, a Republican, will outline Wednesday his plan to shift the city's fleet of cars, heavy trucks and even police cruisers to a mix of electricity and natural gas in coming years.

Whether they are biofuels or something totally different, add a certain spice of life to the field of automotive tales. Here are some of the weirdest people have tried: Alternative Fuel Gas Tank.
