DOE Puts Alternate Fuel Stations on the Map



For millions of Americans, coping with escalating gas prices means carpooling, cutting the AC and driving with the windows down, or just flat out driving less. The idea of purchasing a new hybrid (are there even any used hybrids yet?), or any other type of alternative fuel vehicle to save money on gas, and or to help the environment won’t catch on until alternate fuel stations begin popping up along major US highways coast to coast.

The US Department of Energy’s Energy Efficiency and Renewable Energy website has taken the first step by unveiling their Alternative Fuel Station Locator.

The locator allows users to select and search for Biodiesel (B20 and above), Electric, Hydrogen, Ethanol (E85), Compressed Natural Gas, Liquid Natural Gas, and Liquid Propane Gas (Propane) stations across the US. Simply enter a full address or a zip to locate the alternative fuel stations in the desired location, if any.

An advanced search allows users to select and search the fuel type, location, state, and a desired route. The advanced search allows users to select the type of fueling station (public, private, planned), and even what credit cards the station accepts.
