Triple the Choice at New Biofuel Station

[] Biofuel use in New Mexico got the governor’s seal of approval when an alternative-fuels dispenser was officially opened at the Conoco Amigo Mart in Santa Fe. Gov. Bill Richardson was at the dedication, and the fuel station, which is on the corners of Baca Street and Cerrillos Road, now offers three different types of biofuel. A B20 blend of 20 percent biodiesel and 80 percent petroleum diesel is available for diesel vehicles. The 85 percent ethanol and 15 percent gasoline blend that is called E85 is available for flex fuel vehicles. And anyone can drive in and fill up on E10 Unleaded, which is a 90 percent gasoline and 10 percent ethanol blend used at gas stations across the nation. The concept behind the triple fuel dispenser is to provide “something for everyone,” according to Charles Bensinger, Biofuels Program Director for Renewable Energy Partners of New Mexico. The non-profit organization developed the concept, raised the grant money for the station and administers its operation.
