The Automotive industry continues to be a budding and growing industry wherein new and innovative ideas and technologies find very promising applications periodically. This review paper to a great extent will look into the relevance of carbon nanotubes as a way to improve the performance of “on the road” automobiles in the field of fuel component systems particularly to get a better fuel efficiency. Further the implementation of Carbon Nanotubes shall be dealt in depth with a focus on automobile application. Furthermore, CNTs have been found to have exceptional morphological properties and therefore are promising as reinforcement material in the composite structures along with polymers for many automotive applications. This could also become the basis for weight reduction. Needless to say, CNTs can be utilised for the production of geometrical, irregular or complex shapes and designs with fairly inexpensive and relatively abundant raw materials vis a vis the current conventional processes of fabrication. Therefore cost effectiveness and productivity could also be achieved in scale and scope
