Enterprise Car Rental Offering BioDiesel

enterprise.jpgNow this is just too cool – Enterprise car rental will now offer cars that run on biodiesel in the Portland, OR market. It’s a mere 5 cars for now, but with biodiesel now cheaper than gasoline, that’s bound to get better. The cars are only running on B20 (a 20% bio, 80% regular diesel) fuel, but it’s my understanding that you could fill them up with pure biodiesel if you wanted. (Correct me if I”m wrong).
In other news – the Wisconsin Ag Connection says that fullly 50% of soybean farmers in the state are using biodiesel on the farm and most of those who are not using it, cite availability problems not lack of desire.

  1. Bio-Beetle ECO Rental Cars is already offering (and have been since 2003!) biodiesel powered cars and ONLY 100% biodiesel! They also use non toxic biodegradable cleaners… and striving toward 100% sustainability… Now THAT is cool!

  2. i believe that the bio diesel is a good source of fuel as it is naturally available from the environment from animals wastes, i believe that if it can burn under high combustion it can be able to drive a 200 horse power if possible..
    i am currently doing bio gas project as my final year project and i see that it has the potential..
