Fuel is a material that is used to burn or heat something to produce energy. Almost everything we use is dependent on fuel. From cooking to automobile manufacturing and working, fuel plays an essential role. It is almost impossible to imagine life without fuel. But, currently, we are facing a major fuel crisis.
Due to a shortage of fuel, it is being imported from other countries at very high prices. This can change economic development in India. Even at the petrol pumps, we find that the cost of petrol is increasing gradually. The reason for this is the increasing demand for petroleum.
The burning of fuel produces energy and harmful substances which dissolve in the air. It affects our health badly. They also harm plants and animals. Damage to the environment causes a crisis of global warming. Thus, it is necessary to think seriously about fuel conservation.
Fuel can be conserved by the proper use of vehicles. Fuel consuming vehicles should not be used for close distances. Cycling and walking should be encouraged. By choosing these methods, our body also gets physical exercise and our health is also good.
Carpooling should be encouraged in a wider way. Unnecessary filling of petrol vehicles leads to wastage of fuel. Petrol should be filled in vehicles only when required. Air conditioners should not be used every time, they should only be used during extreme heat. Avoid unnecessary weight in the car.
Fuels are substances that react with oxygen to produce heat. The fuel is made from the Sanskrit word ‘Inda’ metal, which means to burn. There are many types of fuels - solid, liquid, gas, atomic or nuclear etc.
Solid fuels - Those fuels that are solid are called solid fuels. Solid fuels include wood, peat, lignite, coal etc. The ash comes out after burning them. And they produce less amount of heat.
Fluid fuel - Fluid fuels are those which are in a liquid state. These include petroleum-like diesel, petrol, kerosene, bitumen etc. After burning them, the ash does not come out and they expel a large amount of heat.
Gas Fuel - Gaseous fuels are highly flammable and most useful. It consists of natural gas such as hydrogen, propane, coal gas, LPG (liquid petroleum gas) etc. LPG is a part of our everyday life. Nowadays food cannot be made in its homes. At the same time, big industries and businesses also stick to this.
Nuclear fuels are also very important. It has functions like nuclear fission and nuclear fusion.
Saving fuel is as important as producing fuel. Saving fuel also saves us money. Fuel conservation should be practiced as a daily habit. Fuel is needed almost everywhere. In cooking, in vehicles and more.
Sadly, nowadays the amount of fuel is decreasing day by day and due to that, fuel is imported into India at high prices which can really affect the economy of India and also it is not good. , That we are buying products from other countries.
India will develop only if we follow some important steps to protect the economy of our country. Such as - plantation, car-pooling, etc. Nowadays electric vehicles are also available, using them will also save a lot of fuel.
Burning fuel is the most dangerous thing we are doing every day. It produces very harmful gases which are harmful to anyone. They destroy the balance of nature, affecting environmental beauty.
