Birmingham, AL Switches City Fleet to B20

The city of Birmingham, Alabama is switching the more than 600 diesels vehicles in its fleet to a B20 biodiesel blend.

At a launch ceremony, city mayor Bernard Kincaid said that the use of B20 will reduce the use of petroleum diesel by 172,000 gallons per year for approximately the same cost.

The B20 supplier selected through the City’s bid process is Allied Energy/Rice Oil Company in Birmingham. The company has an annual production capacity of 25 million gallons.

One more tiny nail in the big oil companies' coffin! Way to go Birmingham! It would be even more impressive if they used a higher concentration blend, seeing as it stays relatively warm in Alabama. B20 in winter, B50 in summer, or dare I suggest... neat B100!?
