HARRISONBURG, VA – In an attempt to be more environmentally friendly and to educate the public about gasoline alternatives, James Madison University (JMU) is switching all of its 280 gasoline-powered vehicles to a 10-percent ethanol blend, according to The Breeze, the student newspaper for James Madison University.

All JMU vehicles are designed to be able to run ethanol gasoline mixes, and no modifications will have to be made to existing pumping stations at JMU. With the high costs of gasoline, the cost of acquiring the ethanol gasoline mixed fuel is minimal.
