Green Choice for NZ Motorists

NZ has launched its first commercial biofuel – Gull Force 10. Available through Gull Petroleum stations, the “green” fuel blends 90 per cent premium gasoline with 10 per cent bioethanol made from cows’ milk. “We are serious about providing motorists with real choice and leading the way in reducing greenhouse gas emissions,” said PM Helen Clark at the biofuel’s Auckland launch. Gull is a family-owned business with 30 petrol stations in the North Island. Gull commissioned NZ dairy giant Fonterra to produce bioethanol for its Gull Force 10 blend in 2004.
