Environmentalists and automotive engineers are constantly working at ways to reduce carbon emissions, but it is unlikely that anyone will ever develop a fossil-fuel related system where hydrocarbons can be fully cleaned or recycled in a responsible manner. In short, all the carbon has to go somewhere. If you have a direct-injection motor (TFSI, GDI, etc.), the effect of ethanol is even more severe than standard fuel injected motors.
