During the 2014 National Biodiesel’s Vehicle Showcase, UC San Diego, one of San Diego’s best known green fleets, showcased their Bluebird bus with a Caterpillar C7 engine, providing UCSD students with a cleaner commute on B20 biodiesel blends since 2008.
Will Deans, Lead Heavy Duty Mechanic at UC San Diego in Fleet Services represented the University and presented on their green fleet.
“Right now what we are doing is New Leaf is collecting waste grease from the campus. Refining it for us, then we are buying the fuel back. So, we are kind of going cradle to grave with our biodiesel. It has been an exciting project.”
