SPRINGFIELD, Ill. (AP) -- Governor Rod Blagojevich says the state's vehicles are using a record amount of biofuels.
The governor says that since April 2005, agencies have used more than one million gallons of E-85 and biodiesel.
E-85 is a corn-based blend of 85% ethanol and 15% gasoline. Biodiesel is made from soybeans.
Blagojevich issued an executive order directing state agencies and employees to use biofuels whenever possible. Agencies average 60-thousand gallons of biodiesel and 81-hundred gallons of E-85 a month.
The order also told state purchasing experts to prioritize buying flexible fuel vehicles. Blagojevich says more than 400 of the 700 vehicles bought last year by the state were F-F-Vs.
