Fullerton Welcomes Alternative Fuel Station
More than 100 years after the invention of the first electric car, Fullerton is home to a first-of-its-kind alternative energy fuel station. The Propel Clean Mobility Center, located at 1124 E. Chapman Ave., opened last Wednesday and is partially funded by grants from the California Energy Commission and the U.S. Energy Department. The Los Angeles Times is reporting this is the first of 200 clean mobility centers slated for the state.
. For those less environmentally conscious folks, Flexfuel is used by cars capable of accepting a blend of standard petro combined with 85 percent ethanol. Some appreciate ethanol because it releases lessC02
into the atmosphere, however cars using the mixture experience reduced fuel economy.
