Although we haven't spoken too much about tractors, I think it's good to know that green technologies are improving these vehicles. Take this example, German tractor manufacturer Fendt has announced that its new lineup of Vario tractors which reach the Com III emission standards which come in effect next year. Not only does it improve emissions, but consumption. Fendt has installed a system which makes exhaust gases recirculate back to the combustion chamber. A new CVT-like transmission system also allows its tractors to run in the lowest highest gear possible, thus improving consumption further. Not only that, the 820 Variogreentec model is one of the first tractors which are factory-ready to work with Vegetable Oil. With the push of a button, the 820 switches between diesel and rapeseed oil.
