Original survey question: "You said you would be unlikely to use low carbon fuel instead of traditional gasoline (that is, petroleum-based fuel) in your personal vehicle. Which, if any, are the reasons why?"

Supplementary notes from the survey:

  • Totals do not add up to 100 percent as respondents selected ALL that applied
  • The survey measured Americans’ knowledge and experiences with electric-only vehicles, their likelihood of getting one, and their perceptions about barriers preventing and incentives that would encourage them to get a battery-only electric vehicle.
  • The survey also assessed Americans’ awareness about low carbon fuel usage in vehicles and aviation.
  • The interviews were conducted both in English and Spanish and were administered both online and by phone.
  • The margin of error for results based on the total sample is +/-1.59 percentage points at the 95% confidence level.
