With the increasing environmental awareness among motorists, car manufacturers produce vehicles which run on alternative fuels. The only problem though is the availability of the refueling station for these vehicles. In response to that, the USA Energy Independence Publications announced recently that they will publish a directory of all fuel stations that offer E85 and bio-diesel fuel. The said directory will greatly help owners of vehicles with flex fuel capability and those people who own vehicles which can run on bio-diesel. The directory would not only tell motorists where they can find fuel retail stations but it will also feature a buyer’s guide for Flex Fuel vehicles. This is as helpful as one can get from a directory for it also tells motorists where they can find fuel retail stations but also features a buyer’s guide for Flex Fuel vehicles. This is as helpful as Active Brakes Direct for those looking for high performance brake parts.
The information bank lists more than 2200 fuel retail station all over the US. They are listed by state and city which makes it easier for motorists to look for the nearest alternative fuel refilling station in their current location. Aside from the address of these establishments, the USA Energy Independence Publications also includes other pertinent information in the directory like the phone and contact numbers, hours of operation of the station, and types of payment options that the stations accept. The directory will be updated quarterly and will be for sale at $19.95 per copy. Motorists can also subscribe and get discounts and this would be available for the yearly subscribers.
Bill Wolski, the Chief Executive Officer of the USA Energy Independence Publications, emphasized the importance of the directory to those who own flex-fuel vehicles. Since E85 fuel is just starting to take its hold in the US fuel market, there are fewer stations for these than gasoline stations. Knowing where they can find fuel for their alternative fuel powered vehicles will surely give drivers some peace of mind when they are on the road. Truck drivers and owners of passenger cars with diesel engines can also benefit from the directory since it also list stations which offers bio-diesel. Wolski suggests that every flex fuel vehicle owner should have this directory and also those owners of the ordinary vehicles which run on diesel. This suggestion makes sense since with the directory, those motorists can take advantage of the capability of their vehicles to run on cleaner burning fuels.
Aside from giving information on the whereabouts of alternative fuel refilling stations, the 70-page directory also gives background on both E85 and bio-diesel fuels. The information is expressed in layman’s term to make it easier for motorists to understand the advantages of using alternative fuels. This will also encourage motorists to take advantage of their fle4x fuel vehicles capability more often.
The use of alternative fuel is already increasing not only in the US but in the global community. As of today, the US is the fastest growing producer of bio-diesel and the availability of this kind of directory will help in the endorsement of the use of alternative fuels. These fuels are renewable and also burn cleaner than fossil fuels. The impact of the use of alternative fuel in the environment will be very positive, not top mention that these are also cheaper by liter than conventional fuels. The fact that the fuels are produced in the country makes it cheaper than petroleum products which have to be imported from oil producing countries. Alternative fuels are also renewable which means the supply will never run out, what more, the production of ethanol also helps other sectors like agriculture since the raw materials needed to produce bio-ethanol comes from farm products. With further development in this field, the number of refueling stations will definitely increase in number.
