Cape Cod National Seashore to Power Fleets With B20.

Local Massachusetts newspaper the Cape Cod Times recently reported that the Cape Cod National Seashore (CCNS) has begun using B20, a fuel blend of 20 percent biodiesel and 80 percent standard petroleum diesel, to power 15 of its trucks and large equipment.

"Even the 20 percent, it's amazing how much that cuts down on emissions," said CCNS chief of maintenance Ben Pearson.

According to the Cape Cod Times, CCNS's change to B20 was delayed until two local companies, Loud Fuel and R.M. Packer, began supplying the alternative fuel.
