Biodiesel successfully powers vehicles and equipment across the country in all kinds of weather and operating conditions – but if your fleet is considering starting biodiesel use, there is no better time than the Spring to start a B20 blend for your vehicles.
According to data from the National Truck Equipment Association, biodiesel is the top alternative fuel choice of fleets nationwide. From passenger vehicles to bulldozers, from street sweepers to school buses, from municipal fleets to tractor trailers, and even in boats and beyond, the use of biodiesel is helping thousands of fleets reduce carbon emissions and clear the air.
“High performing biodiesel is a win-win, drop-in fleet solution,” said Clean Fuels Ohio’s Consulting Services Director, Andrew Conley; “Biodiesel is better for engines by adding lubricity, and better for the environment by reducing carbon and tailpipe pollution. Through Ohio companies like Benchmark Biodiesel -- which has a contract on the state term schedule -- the cost is the same as regular diesel, so there’s every reason to switch.”
Fleets looking to replicate the success of peers can leverage a cooperative biodiesel contract with the City of Columbus or Ohio Department of Administrative Services to streamline the transition to biodiesel and save even more time and money! This opportunity is available to all public fleets, including counties, municipalities, schools and more.
