Disney Goes Biodiesel

The steam trains that run around Disneyland are now running on biodiesel that is a mix of 2 percent diesel and 98 percent soybean oil, known as B98. Apparently this saves 150,000 gallons of diesel a year, and reduces carbon dioxide emissions by 80 percent. It’s also over $0.50 cheaper per gallon for Disney, so it makes economic sense too.

The train carries nearly 10,000 people a day, and Disney are looking into converting their other vehicles to more clean burning fuels.
