Transfer Flow Fuel Tanks Installed on EcoTrek's Cellulosic Ethanol Fueled Vehicle
Transfer Flow is proud to be a part of EcoTrek'S "Best of America Tour". EcoTrek is a non-profit organization that conducts research and educational programs to advance the use of renewable fuels and materials. Their F250 Ford pickup is powered by POET™ Cellulosic Ethanol. Cellulosic Ethanol (“CE”) is the next generation of EPA-approved biofuels made in America from grasses, crop residues and waste materials diverted and potentially harvested from land-fills. In America, the production of CE could create tens of thousands of jobs, increase unsubsidized revenue to farmers and lower demand for foreign fuels.. The project vehicle has three Transfer Flow 82-gallon refueling tanks installed in the bed of the pickup.
