The Dixie Chopper (pictured) is a propone-powered lawn mower and was one of many alternative fuel vehicles shown at an event sponsored by the Southeast Texas Regional Planning Commission and the National Alternative Fuel Training Consortium. Electric vehicles like the GEM, CNG busses and E85 trucks were on display. Experts were also available to tout the benefits and economics of alternative-fuel vehicles. Researchers also described the MixAlco process, which is a method of turning sewer sludge and rotten fruit into fuel. The event was part of many celebrated around the country to recognize National Alternative Fuel Vehicle Day Odyssey last week.
