I am glad to see the Collegian informing the public about ethanol, a future alternative fuel source for Fort Collins. However, it would be nice if they let the public know that Fort Collins already has a form of alternative fuel, biodiesel.
Blue Sun Biodiesel has a B20 pump at Team Petroleum, located on Lincoln Street. B20 dramatically reduces emissions on diesel vehicles, increases fuel economy up to 15 percent, is renewable, biodegradable and made in the United States, thus reducing dependency on foreign fuel.
Blue Sun B20 contains 20 percent biodiesel and 80 percent petroleum diesel. B100 (100 percent biodiesel) is another biodiesel fuel that Blue Sun offers and is made from only virgin vegetable oils like soybean oil. No petroleum products are used!
Unlike ethanol, which can only be used in specific vehicles, biodiesel can be used in any diesel vehicle with little to no modifications.
Again, I am happy to see people are becoming more informed about alternative energy like ethanol, but they also should know more is out there. All this information and more can be found on Blue Sun's Web site www.goBlueSun.com.
