    • Abstract:
      The Clean Cities network is growing, and more fleets are considering alternative fuels. “Industry old-timers” that have been using alternative fuels since the passage of Energy Policy Act of 1992 are beginning to replace their used alternative fuel vehicles (AFVs) with new ones. Many of the used vehicles, however, still have a lot of life left in them. Used AFVs can offer fleets a less expensive way to test the alternative fuel waters. Our cover story for this issue examines the current used AFV market and describes a few local AFV resale efforts. Clean Cities not only promotes AFVs, but also—and perhaps more importantly—encourages the increased use of alternative fuel in AFVs. Flexible fuel vehicles (FFVs), with no incremental cost, were once considered the solution to the notorious chicken and egg problem of the alternative fuel industry. FFVs are an attractive option for fleets, but if drivers do not fuel their vehicles with E85, FFVs contribute nothing to our clean air and petroleum displacement goals. To help connect FFV drivers with the fuel, the Minnesota E85 Team, which recently celebrated the opening of the 50th public access E85 station in the Twin Cities region, has come up with some creative ways to promote E85 use. You can learn more about the Minnesota effort—which has built the largest E85 refueling network in the country—in our feature story.
