BioDiesel-Powered Valentines for Chicago

January14, 2004 [SolarAccess.com] The Scrolling Mobile Billboard Company, of Chicago, Illinois, has launched the BioDiesel-powered “IloveYouTruck,” a renewable fuel vehicle that offers mobile billboards and floral arrangements for Chicago-area Valentine’s Day shoppers. All ILoveYouTrucks are powered with BioDiesel fuel that is made from recycled cooking grease, because the Scrolling Mobile Billboard Company wanted to make them safer for the environment. The company owns a biofuel-powered fleet of 20-foot trucks that consists of computerized, rotating billboards which scroll to display different programmable messages, such as “I’m Sorry,” “Happy Anniversary,” “Let’s Be Friends,” and “I Love You, Will You Marry Me?”
