Alternative Fueled Vehicles
Adherence to NASA Compliance Strategy and Goals
NASA Headquarters issued a comprehensive strategy
dated December 2002 that describes the steps NASA will take in meeting
the mandates of EPAct and E.O. 13149. Each CTO shall play an integral
role in ensuring the goals are consistently met. See NPR 6200.1B.
Mandatory Use of On-Site Alternative Fuel Resources
Ideally, all Centers should have on-site alternative
fuel facilities but this may not be feasible at all locations.
Nevertheless, for sites that do have the capability, use of B20
bio-diesel fuel is required for diesel-powered vehicles and use of E-85
fuel is required in all vehicles that are designed for E-85 use. The use
of fuel management key- or card-lock systems to enforce use of on-site
supplies of E-85 is recommended where appropriate.
Use of Neighborhood Electric Vehicles (NEVís)
Section 202 of E.O. 13149 encourages the procurement
of innovative vehicles such as electric and hybrid electric vehicles.
Centers are encouraged to use NEVs to fill inventory requirements where
feasible. Vehicle users shall be educated on the availability of these
resources and their benefits, especially as they relate to the EPAct and
