Agencies Directed to Maximize Alt-Fuel Use in Fleet Vehicles
The Department of General Services has directed that all state agencies and departments maximize the use of alternative fuels and cut petroleum consumption within their respective vehicle fleets.
DGS estimates that there are more than 9,000 flex fuel vehicles in the state fleet that operate on gasoline, E85 ethanol fuel, or a combination of both.
DGS has reiterated that all agencies implement internal policies to ensure that drivers of alternative fuel vehicles are compelled to use alternative fuels in those vehicles whenever feasible and to require state employees driving flex fuel vehicles to use E85 fuel when filling up at a station where E85 fuel is available.
