Alternative Fuel Vehicles

UCAR Transportation is making every effort to increase it's alternative fuel fleet.  At present, 70% of our fleet (33 out of 46 vehicles) utilize alternative fuels.  We have 28 bi-fuel gas/ethanol (E85) vehicles, 1 hybrid electric vehicle, and 4 plug-in hybrid electric vehicles.  We hope to increase our HEV and PHEV fleet as these vehicles become more readily available through the GSA leasing program.
