The influence of certain types of motor fuels on environment and people health has been analyzed in the first part of the paper. Attention is paid to greater implementation of cleaner, alternative motor fuels. It is followed by analysis of the role and importance of tax on motor fuel as instrument for transportation sustainable development. Experiences of some countries and their use of this economic instrument are given in the last part of the paper.
