Navy testing 100% biofuel in fighter jets

September 14, 2016 |

In Maryland, Secretary of the Navy Ray Mabus rode aboard one of the EA-18G Growler fighter jets testing 100% biofuel flights this month to demonstrate his commitment to getting biofuel mainstream within the Navy. Currently all Navy ships and planes are certified to run on 50% biofuel blends. This summer’s RIMPAC training exercises filled up with biofuel supplied by AltAir Fuels in California at $2.15 per gallon compared to $26 per gallon back in 2012 during the first green run at RIMPAC.
