London, Aug. 30: Automobile engineers have shown that soap bubbles, filled with helium, could improve the fuel efficiency and take the drag out of future cars.

Using 12 cameras, a team in Britain has tracked the three millimetre bubbles which swirl around cars in a wind tunnel and found that the helium in the bubbles gives them neutral buoyancy, the New Scientist reported.

This report presents a side-by-side comparison of fuels and vehicles with the recognition that future technological advances or additional research into unresolved issues, such as the land-use impact of biofuel production, could alter findings and make certain options more or less attractive.

Some of the most important technical innovations in the transportation field have nothing to do with vehicle technology or alternative fuels. Rather, they involve the way bus services
