Oregon Residents Launch Biodiesel Car-sharing Program.

Local Oregon television news station KVAL recently reported that 10 residents of Eugene, OR have launched a new program, known as "Eugene BioCarShare," that pays approximately $400 each to share a 1982 Mercedes diesel sedan that runs on biodiesel.

According to KVAL, program members pay a monthly insurance fee and 30 cents per mile for fuel, scheduling their car use through the program website, http://www.biocarshare.org.

"It takes away our dependence on foreign oil because...it is a domestically produced renewable energy source," said BioCarShare member Ephraim Payne.
