State Gets New Cars
Laramie, Wy – The state vehicle fleet just got bigger.
General Motors is loaning the state a car the uses new technology to run cleaner than typical gas-powered vehicles.
It's called a flexible fuel vehicle, and it's powered by a combination of gasoline and ethanol, a fuel made from corn.
Roger Clark is a G-M spokesman. He says the company is lending cars to 28 different states, in hopes of generating more interest in alternative fuel vehicles.
There's only one drawback. The state might be limited in where it uses the car, because Wyoming has just one ethanol fuel station.
It's in Torrington.
