VEGETABLE OIL powered rental cars
Debut in Los Angeles
Los Angeles, California – Bio-Beetle, Inc., a Maui, Hawaii based corporation, announces the debut of 100% biodiesel rental cars to California, beginning with their new office in Los Angeles. Bio-Beetle Eco Rental Cars is introducing diesel vehicles that will be powered solely by biodiesel, a diesel fuel made from vegetable oils. Bio-Beetle is the first and only rental car company in the world to offer rental cars fueled exclusively with biodiesel.
Bio-Beetle made its original debut on the Hawaiian island of Maui in January of 2003.
“Our goal is a sustainable society, and Bio-Beetle is a step in that direction, giving visitors and LA residents a renewable energy option when renting a car,” said Shaun Stenshol, Founder/President. “Or, as our slogan says, ‘Give the planet a vacation the next time you take one.’”
“Besides the obvious less polluting benefits Bio-Beetle Eco Rental Cars offer, the renter is saying that they would rather support American farmers than the oil industry and the wars that are fought for that oil, plus they are doing something pro active to help prevent things like drilling in the Arctic National Wildlife Refuge and being part of oil spills like Exxon Valdez,” said Pamela Miedtke-Wolf, co-owner of Bio-Beetle.
Bio-Beetles are unmodified diesel Volkswagen Beetles, Jettas, and Passats. The weekly rental rates in Los Angeles will start at $199.
Biodiesel production in the U.S. was 75 million gallons in 2005. That’s up from 25 million gallons in 2004. Biodiesel is non-toxic in pure form (B100), biodegradable and significantly cuts emissions.
