New Bi-Fuel Chevy Impala Uses Trash For Fuel

Bi-Fuel Chevy ImpalaChevrolet has gone green in a completely unexpected way. The automaker recently announced a “Back to the Future”-like 2015 Bi-fuel Chevy Impala that converts trash to fuel, just like Marty McFly’s time-traveling Delorean—minus the DeLorean’s traveling perks.

The bi-fuel Impala, which was created by Cleveland-based Quasar Energy Group, can run on leftovers, table scraps, and a multitude of other organic wastes. This waste is used to produce a renewable energy source known as biogas, which in turn produces methane gas. With this methane gas, the Impala is able to create Renewable Natural Gas, which is a direct replacement for Compressed Natural Gas (CNG).

Much of the waste used to create the bi-fuel Impala’s fuel comes from Progressive Field, home of the Cleveland Indians, after it has been macerated in the InSinkErator Grind2Energy garbage disposal. If you are worried about being able to find CNG fuel, don’t worry—the Impala was made bi-fuel specifically to drive on gasoline when CNG fuel is not available.

Adaptive Cruise Control Revolutionizes 2014 Chevy Impala

Cruise control has become more common than a preteen girl who likes Justin Bieber and is utilized in almost every car on the market. Since it’s introduction to the automotive world, cruise control has become more and more adaptive, gaining the ability to slow down and speed up in sync with another vehicle. While this innovation makes driving a long distance easier, the technology doesn’t slow down your car if the car in front of you stops suddenly.

Bradshaw Chevrolet Buick GMC Cadillac of Greer, SCChevrolet has decided to change this with the introduction of its ground-breaking Adaptive Cruise Control system, which will be implemented in the 2014 Chevy Impala. This new system will be able to stop your car completely when it senses a sudden stop from the car you’re following, therefore keeping you safer than ever before. The system will also be paired with a second system that is capable of stopping the car if a hazard suddenly appears in the roadway.

“Results indicated that brake-apply rates were 25 times lower under freeway conditions relative to manual driving,” said James Sayers, a research scientist with the Human Factors Group, in a statement. “These results suggest that Adaptive Cruise Control can substantially reduce the workload and stress associated with the everyday task of car following.”
