Fort Collins Experiments With B20 Biodiesel in City Fleet

March 10, 2005

FORT COLLINS, CO – The city of Fort Collins is experimenting with biodiesel and fueling up city buses, backhoes, and other vehicles with the fuel made partially of vegetable oil, according to the Associated Press.The fuel, called B20, is a combination of 20 percent biodiesel and 80 percent petroleum diesel. If all goes well, the city will switch over to the biodiesel blend next year. The cost of B20 will be about 24 cents more per gallon than conventional diesel, but city officials are hopeful that a new tax incentive will help narrow the gap to about a dime or less.
