DURHAM, N.H. (AP) – Some New Hampshire communities have been using biodiesel fuel for a while, and Wednesday the governor opened a biodiesel fueling station for state vehicles.

Gov. John Lynch, accompanied by officials from the state Department of Transportation and the University of New Hampshire, said it shows the state is entering a new era.

The vehicles will run on fuel that’s 20 percent biodiesel, which is made from recycled cooking oil.
