Petroleum – Gasoline and Diesel
Personnel at all Centers shall strive to meet the
mandates of E.O. 13149 and reduce the use of gasoline and regular diesel
in vehicles that can run on alternative fuels.
Current mandates as outlined in E.O. 13149 require
managers to take an active role in reducing petroleum consumption
through improvements in fuel efficiency and the use of alternative
fuels. See also 5.2.3 and chapter 6 for more detailed information on the
use of alternative fuels. The following practices should be employed at
all Centers where feasible:
B20 bio-diesel for diesel vehicles fueled on site. Bio-diesel
feedstock (B100) must meet ASTM Specification D6751. For more
information on bio-diesel, go to

Links > Alternative Fuels Information Station.
in light duty vehicles and other applications where possible;
installation of a facility on base is ideal; set key or card lock
access system to restrict use of gasoline fuel in E-85 vehicles when
fueling on site.
the use of CNG when no other alternative fuel option is available.
