As an interesting aside, I facilitated a biofuels workshop roundtable last August, at a Public Transportation Conference in Seattle--it was standing room only. One of my guest speakers was a maintenance manager from a transit agency in in Eastern Washington. They were beginning a pilot program to run a B20/E7 in their fleet. The ethanol blend was intended to reduce NOx emissions and to assist as an anti-gelling agent for the Sub-zero temps they occasionally experience over there. I'm anxious to get their latest update at this year's conference, which I'll probably be hosting, as well. Halfway through the pilot, they reported smooth sailing.
