    Pour mon examen de francais il faut que j'ecrive de ce qu'il faut faire pour etre juge un bon president.

    Donc, il faut que je parle des "Alternative Fuels." Est-ce que vous savez comment dire ca en francais?

    It cannot be energies because there are many of them which are not fuels: electricity, the wind, rushing water, biomass, etc.

    Ok, but I wonder if fuel isn't also by extension a synonym of energy.

    I don't think so (I teach Science and Environment in a University, and we there is no example of "Fuel" being synonym of "energy"). There are many alternative fuels: mixture of gasoline and ethanol (it's called "Flex-fuel"), liquid gas, compressed natural gas, some oils, propane, and, still largely experimental but the future because of an unexhaustible supply (you just extract it from sea-water), hydrogen
