alternative fuel vehicle

A vehicle purchased or leased from an original equipment manufacturer (or converted in the aftermarket) that is capable of operating on an alternative transportation fuel. Flexible fuel and bi-fuel vehicles are also considered to be alternative fuel vehicle, as are vehicles that operate on blended fuels, when an alternative transportation fuel makes up at least fifty percent of the blend.
