In our continuing commitment to the environment, we are switching our company vehicles from petroleum-based fuels to Biodiesel. Biodiesel is made from vegetable oil, generally soy bean oil in this country. Any diesel vehicle can run onBiodiesel with no modifications to the engine what so ever. We purchase the 100% vegetable oil fuel (B-100) in bulk and run two of our three company vehicles on it. We feel that this is our small contribution to helping to alleviate our nation’s addiction to oil.
