Far as I know. Matter of fact, pretty much anything we're likely to burn 
in an internal combustion engine (save pure hydrogen, a pressure tank of 
which is something I really don't want between my legs) is a hydrocarbon 
of some sort and will produce the same waste products. The only way I 
can see (although I'm not a chemist) to reduce the proportion of CO2 
would be to burn something with a higher proportion of hydrogen to 
carbon. What mixes that might be I'm not sure. 'Course, then you get 
drives to more complete combustion, which in laymans terms means running 
bloody lean as all hell.
