The reduction of emissions and fuel consumption using fuels that are renewable and have lower emission rates can provide considerable benefits for national parks such as Yosemite. One fuel that has shown considerable promise in meeting these needs is biodiesel. To date, a number of studies have demonstrated emissions reductions for biodiesel fuels relative to ordinary diesel fuel (U.S. Environmental Protection Agency, 2002). Biodiesel is commercially available and also more readily implemented than other alternative fuels, such as natural gas. Biodiesel requires no modifications to the engine and only minor modifications to existing fuel practices. An added benefit of biodiesel fuels is that they can be derived from renewable, domestic resources, such as crops or waste grease. As such, biodiesel has been designated as an alternative fuel under the Energy Policy Act (EPACT). This allows fleet operators to meet the EPACT alternative fuel vehicle (AFV) acquisition requirements. Biodiesel is added to conventional diesel at blends of 20 percent and higher. The use of biodiesel in fleet and other applications has expanded considerably in recent years, from essentially negligible levels in 1998 to 20 million gallons in 2002 (McCormick, 2003). This includes municipal fleets, military applications, postal applications, and others. The production capacity in the U.S. could be 150 million gallons per year. In Europe, production is currently at 200 million gallons, with a capacity of 600 million gallons. As the use of biodiesel continues to expand, fleets are continuing to examine potential applications of biodiesel. Yellowstone National Park has conducted a demonstration program (University of Idaho and Montana Department of Environmental Quality, 1999). Channel Island National Park is also using biodiesel on a regular basis. Currently, DNC Parks and Resorts at Yosemite, Inc. (DNC) is considering the use of biodiesel in its fleet vehicles for applications in the park. DNC gene
