“Our annual biodiesel vehicle wrap program provides matching funds to help biodiesel users promote their use of America’s advanced biofuel,” explains Kaleb Little, NBB’s director of communications. “This year, we were pleased to select five winners whose unique wraps are helping to showcase their commitment to reduced emissions and cleaner air.”

Rockwood Summit High School (RSHS) in Fenton, Mo., wrapped a 1992 Ford F250, fondly known as “Old Brownie.” The pickup is used for a biodiesel partnership program called Fuel Wash U.

A B50 blend is then sold back to Washington University for use in three catering trucks:
