Local CO City to Test Biodiesel in Fleet Vehicles.

Local Colorado newspaper the Durango Herald recently reported that the city of Durango plans to operate its fleet vehicles with biodiesel during a trial period in order to evaluate the alternative fuel's performance.

"It's not cast in stone, but we would like to test the fuel for 90 days in the entire fleet," said city fleet manager Roy Peterson.

In addition, the newspaper reported that a local Parkway Exxon fueling station in Durango plans to begin offering biodiesel later this month.
