Abstract

The strategic advantages for substituting synthetic fuels for crude oil based gasoline and heating oil have long been evident but the questions as to when and to what extent have not been addressed in total. Based on corporate and government research reports, we assess and summarize the case for the four leading substitutes in 2016 and 2021.
