Virgin has gone bio-diesel, or at least for the next six months they will be trying it out on a converted Voyager class DMU which will travel all over the place (UK).
If successful, Virgin hopes to convert its entire Voyager fleet to biodiesel fuel, which could cut emissions by 14%.
Virgin boss Richard Branson said the environmental impact was equivalent to taking 23,000 cars off the road
With the correct legislation and a huge drive to build lines, improve journeys and lower prices then we’d see a lot more than 23,000 cars off the road. But at least it is a step in the right direction.
