Orlando International Airport Testing B20 Biodiesel in Equipment

14 August 2006

The Greater Orlando Aviation Authority (GOAA), which operates the Orlando International Airport, is one of the first governmental bodies in Central Florida to test the effectiveness and viability of biodiesel fuel in daily applications and operations.

Orlando Interational Airport (MCO) is testing a B20 biodiesel blend in approximately 100 of its fleet vehicles. The mixture is approved for use in tugs, trucks, buses and general diesel equipment; the test vehicles are using about 1,000 gallons a day.

We continue to look for environmentally friendly, yet economically viable alternatives to meet our growing demand for fuel for various ground operations around the airport. Bio-diesel offers that unique blend of comparable price and quality that we were looking for.

—Steve Gardner, Interim Executive Director for the Greater Orlando Aviation Authority

Delta Airlines is working with Ford Motor Company, the Florida Department of Environmental Protection (DEP), TUG Technologies Corporation, Delta Airlines and GOAA to test two hydrogen-fueled airport tow tractors at the Orlando airport. (Earlier post.)

Orlando International Airport is the busiest passenger airport in the state of Florida with over 34.1 million travelers in 2005.

The Yamaha Roadstar Warrior uses a multi layer head gasket when using the OEM gaskets. In order to fight the bad ping we simply double up on the head gasket for a touch more compression chamber volume. This enables the engine to run with High Compression pistons like the ones sold by Yamaha as part of the Stage IV setup. Make sure you replace ALL gaskets when you take of the heads. There is a valve cover gasket and a rocker box gasket in addition to the head gaskets. If you want to go safe all the way you...

Soya production primarily is not being cultivated to provide food for the world’ s hungry population. Most of it is harvested in order to feed cattle in countries such as the United States, Western Europe and in China. The cattle are then processed to become beef that usually do not land on the table of the hungry of poorer nations.
