City turning toward biofuel
From Eyewitness News:
Thousands of restaurants throughout New York City are recycling their used cooking oil, keeping it out of landfills and providing a cleaner fuel source.
Local gas stations then sell diesel fuel from Tri-State Biodiesel, which can be used by any vehicle that uses diesel. It costs the same, but is much better for the environment.
And Tri-State Biodiesel is busy, making weekly pick ups of used cooking oil from more than 3,000 restaurants throughout the five boroughs.
