Orlando airport switches to biodiesel for some vehicles

One hundred vehicles at the Orlando International Airport have been switched over to B20 for a test period to see if biodiesel is a suitable substitute for diesel. The airport is using about 1,000 gallons of biodiesel a day in the test vehicles. The interim executive director for the Greater Orlando Aviation Authority, Steve Gardner, said, "We continue to look for environmentally friendly, yet economically viable, alternatives to meet our growing demand for fuel for various ground operations around the airport. Biodiesel offers that unique blend of comparable price and quality that we were looking for." There's no word on how long the test will run or what exactly the airport is looking for.
