Green Fuel Station and a Chinese Reva

Via GCC:

How much greener can you get? A bio-diesel fuel station that uses solar power to run! Having said that it must be mentioned that green still comes with a hefty price premium.This pump in California sells a 100% bio-diesel blend called B100 (contains no diesel, only the biofuel), at $3.71 per gallon. That makes it much more expensive than conventional diesel in California which starts from $2.30 per gallon.

And here is China's answer to the Reva. Though the specs read favorably over the regular Reva they are slightly inferior to the Reva NXG, which Reva has not yet decided to launch in India. The Dilip Chabria designed NXG is positively a looker in comparison though.
