Rubber is used in the fuel systems of cars, and so, it is important to predict the automotive fuel in the future. In this report, the history of automotive fuels is outlined, and the future of them is considered. Bio-fuels are expected for carbon-neutral fuels, but their use is in face of the food problem. It is very important to develop technologies to produce ethanol from cellulosic biomass.
