Chevron starts road trip to showcase renewable gasoline use
Chevron U.S.A. Inc., a subsidiary of Chevron Corporation, has started a road trip across the U.S. Gulf Coast to showcase an innovative new gasoline blend with more than 50% renewable content.
The objective of this road trip is to demonstrate the fuel, which is more than 40% less carbon intensive than traditional gasoline on a lifecycle basis.
Renewable gasoline blend can be used in the existing automotive fleet and with the existing fueling network.
People from Chevron and Toyota will be driving Toyota’s Tundra, RAV4 and Camry on this road trip.
The road trip will run from Mississippi through Louisiana before concluding in Texas. During the tour, Chevron representatives will talk with members of the public about the benefits of lower carbon fuels like biofuels and renewable gasoline blend. People can follow the tour on Twitter and LinkedIn using the hashtag #futurefuelsshowcase.
Chevron believes the future of transportation is lower carbon and is growing its offering of biofuels solutions. The company produces and markets biodiesel, renewable diesel, and renewable natural gas, and is currently building hydrogen fueling infrastructure in California. To complement these efforts, Chevron has developed, produced, and tested blends of renewable gasoline with the goal of such blends being manufactured using today’s infrastructure and used in almost any gasoline-powered vehicle to deliver an immediate carbon intensity reduction over traditional gasoline.
