Research into energy sources remains a key issue. Over the last 90 years, Fuel has been the leading source of primary research work in fuel science. The scope is broad and includes many topics of increasing interest such as environmental aspects and pollution.

A wide variety of fuels are covered:
Oils and gases
Synthetic fuels (including Dimethyl ether (DME), Methanol etc)
Tar sands
Natural gas
Oil shale
Tar and pitch
Woods and biomass
Hydrogen fuels
Waste-derived fuels (WDF)
Refuse-derived fuels (RDF)
Carbon with applications to fuel energy
Carbon Capture, Utilisation and Storage - Science and Technologies

Authors are also welcome to submit to Fuel 's gold open access companion title, Fuel Communications.
