wow thats cool, glad to hear it, wish more cities would start that, I do know iowa of coarse pushes using E85 in the states gas powered vehicles but I am not sure on the diesel vehicles although they are pushing renewable fuels and pushing to make this state energy independent, or at least energy neutral

The City of Portland also passed a law that all commercial diesels use at least B-5, and the state has a fleet of E-85 cars that is growing fast.

I'm actually surprised that more cities have not done that..

If every city used just 10% biofuel, we might actually see a small effect on the over all fuel industry..

Ok.. maybe not.. but it would be a big a$$ step in the right direction..

if they went to mandating 2% biodiesel for all on road use nationwide, class 8 trucks alone would save 1,460,000,000 approx. gallons per year of dino fuel, that doesn't include the class 7 and smaller commercial vehicles or the light duty private vehicles or motor homes that use diesel. no imagine if it was the same as ethonal at 10%

Edit to add, that is actually an old number based on fuel usage by class 8 trucks a few years ago I think the current number is actually 50%+ higher.
