Leonardo Academy develops alternative fuel locator app
 

   Leonardo Academy announced its new alternative fuel locator mobile app, Cleaner and Greener® Fuels. The app is free of charge and provides a series of interactive maps that locate alternative fuel stations across the United States via a smartphone or mobile device. The app can be downloaded from both the iTunes App Store and the Google Play Store (the Android market) or the Cleaner and Greener® website.

   The Cleaner and Greener® Fuels app provides alternative fuel station information and routes for the following alternative fuel types: Electric, Compressed Natural Gas (CNG), Biodiesel, Liquefied Natural Gas (LNG), E85, Liquefied Petroleum Gas (LPG or Propane) and Hydrogen.

   The data was obtained from the Department of Energy’s Alternative Fuels & Advanced Vehicles Data Center (AFDC). According to the AFDC, there were over 850.000 alternative fuel vehicles driven on U.S. roads in 2011, a number which will certainly increase in the near future as more people are seeking to reduce dependency on conventional fossil fuels. Cleaner and Greener® Fuels supply these drivers with directions to fuel stations across the country, as well as other helpful information such as access restrictions, blend types, payment methods accepted and web links, when available.

   To ensure the accuracy of its data, Cleaner and Greener® Fuels starts with fueling locations verified by the AFDC. Users and station owners are also encouraged to expand the database by submitting additional stations and details directly through the Cleaner and Greener® website.
