January, 2006


All 57 of FLL's airport shuttles and trams are now environmentally friendly. The fleet runs on B-20 bio-diesel fuel which is a mixture of 80% petroleum and 20% bio-diesel fuel.

Every gallon of bio-diesel fuel used saves a gallon of fossil fuel. It is estimated that the use of bio-diesel fuel in the airport's vehicles will eliminate the need to burn 150,000 gallons of fossil fuel annually.
