DesMoines Transit Authority Switches to E-Diesel

5 July 2005

The Des Moines, Iowa, Metropolitan Transit Authority (MTA) is switching its 140 diesel-powered coaches and para-transit vehicles to O2Diesel’s ethanol-diesel (e-diesel) blend in August.

The latest member of O2Diesel’s CityHome program (earlier post), the Des Moines MTA represents the largest fleet conversion under the program to the blend to date.

CityHome is a partnership involving municipal transit systems, O2Diesel and corporate sponsors. CityHome sponsors, which include Financial Times, Patriot Motorcycles, local corn growers associations and ethanol boards, offset the added cost of O2Diesel’s ethanol-diesel fuel blend.

O2Diesel uses 7.7% ethanol, with up to 1% proprietary additive and a cetane improver.
