MoO<sub>2</sub> possesses both high ionic and electronic conductivities, while showing a high reforming activity toward both gasoline and Jet-A fuel with an exceptionally high coking resistance. Because of these unique material properties of MoO<sub>2</sub>, it could outperform the conventional Ni-YSZ cermet if it is integrated into SOFCs. We will describe a fabrication of MoO<sub>2</sub>-based anode using two different designs and its application in SOFCs. First design is based on the porous MoO<sub>2</sub> layer with a thin carbon shell as its current collector. Second design is based on a bi-layer structure between MoO<sub>2</sub> micro-reforming layer and Ni cermet. When a premium gasoline fuel mixture was directly fed into the anode, our novel MoO<sub>2</sub>-based SOFCs generated a maximum power density output over 3 W/cm<sup>2</sup> at 750<sup>o</sup>C. The implication of this study is that an SOFC using a MoO<sub>2</sub>-based anode has potential for generating electrical power from gasoline for future hybrid electric vehicles.
