      While parent company Honda continues to bestow all of its hybrid
      technology on its Honda division vehicles, Acura is doing without any
      alternate engine sources to power their cars and SUVs. Instead, the
      division is relying on newer gasoline engines to promote fuel
      efficiency as well as to lower greenhouse gas emissions. Is Acura
      doing enough or is Honda's luxury division missing the boat? Big
      changes are headed Acura's way, changes that could enormously
      overhaul the brand and bring to the market vehicles powered by a
      variety of alternate fuel sources. Let's examine exactly what might
      be Acura's alternate powerplant offerings at the beginning of the
      next decade.
      Diesel, Biodiesel - Honda got into the diesel market late, but the
      company's first offerings are considered to be exceptionally good.
      Four cylinder powered diesel engines are being developed that will
      initially appear in select Honda model cars within the next two
      years. These new engines meet current EPA guidelines and raise the
      typical fuel mileage of each car by about 30%. Importantly, each
      engine will be able to run on biodiesel a renewable resource made of
      ingredients such as soybeans. Acura may get its own diesel aspirated
      engine soon after the launch of the first diesel powered Honda hits
      the market....
