For years the ongoing development of the world's biggest automobile companies in the area of construction of new alternative vehicles propulsion and their gradual deployment into practical operation along with the positives, the using of alternative propulsion in transport brings also a number of technical problems. The most crucial is according to the type of used fuel and its placing inside the vehicle, where every extra kilogram carried by mass means higher consumption, lower tank range and significant change in the driving characteristics of the vehicle with consequent impact on the continuity and safety of vehicular traffic. In the case of electric vehicles the issue is capacity, size and location of batteries, for vehicles powered by natural gas (LNG, CNG) or hydrogen the main problems are size, number and location of pressure bottles and the like. The searching of new suitable materials and technologies and their processing is therefore a major requirement and precondition for the further development and using of the alternative fuels.
