The Department of Energy’s Mobile Alternative Fueling Station Locator enables users to find the nearest alternative fuel station using their cell phone, BlackBerry, or other personal digital assistant (PDA).
It provides users with the five closest biodiesel, electricity, E85 (ethanol), hydrogen, natural gas, and propane fueling sites.
This tool uses easy-to-navigate Google Maps to automatically generate maps to fueling sites, and lists each station’s contact information and business hours.
Detailed driving directions and an instant phone connection to the station can all be accessed at www.afdc.energy.gov/stations/m.
The mobile station locator, part of the Alternative Fuels and Advanced Vehicles Data Center website, was developed by the National Renewable Energy Laboratory (NREL), which manages the AFDC.
