Season-ticket holders had

The fuel is 20 percent soybean
oil and 80 percent petroleum diesel.


University officials say the fuel
efficiency will be similar, but the
smell and color of the bus exhaust will
be better.

The biodiesel fuel trial started
last week and is expected to last for
at least two months.

If all goes well, buses will
convert totally to the biodiesel fuel
