LARAMIE, Wyo. — University of Wyoming Extension is converting one of its vehicles so it can use both gasoline and natural gas thanks to a $13,000 grant from Encana.
UW Extension Director Glen Whipple says it makes sense that Wyoming would be a leader in the use of compressed natural gas as a motor fuel because of its natural gas production.
He says the 2012 Ford F-150 bi-fuel vehicle will spend the most time around Laramie, along the Interstate 80 corridor, in western Wyoming such as Sweetwater, Fremont and Big Horn counties and areas east of the Idaho/Utah border.
UW Extension maintains a fleet of 31 trucks, SUVs and sedans.
