Biofuel goes mainstream in Akld

Published: 10:18AM Friday August 08, 2008 Source: ONE News/Newstalk ZB

In a New Zealand first, biofuel is going mainstream in Auckland on Friday as Gull introduces its first 91 octane bio-ethanol blend.

The company says it will try to keep the cost of the bio-fuel two cents a litre below its standard 91 octane petrol.
The "regular plus" contains 10% ethanol and contains bio-ethanol sourced from whey - a natural by-product from the dairy industry.

It's only available from the Gull station on the Albany Highway in Auckland at this stage, the first of its 33 stations.

Gull is the first to offer a New Zealand produced biofuel component to a wide variety and number of motorists.
