Biodiesel Monitoring Program in Cooperation with RIT

Campus program is on-going. Shuttle van and plow truck have been using B20 since early November with no significant problems. Oil has been changed and samples will be analyzed for impacts from the biodiesel. B20 fuel samples will be analyzed for various properties. The weather this winter has been slightly warmer than average. The lowest temperature in February was 0° F but there were also a few 60° F days that month. Snow totals in the Rochester area exceed 100 inches this season, which is well above the average 84 inches.
