The reason we've created "alternative" fuels that use oil is chemistry - the energy density of oil is higher than anything else that is economical. That's why GTL is more promising than hydrogen or CNG.

Maybe one of these days we'll have a "Mr. Fusion" in all our vehicles as featured in the movie Back to the Future :-)
