There are two fuel stations on Maui that carry 100% biodiesel. One in Lahaina, and one near the OGG airport, and our office. Although there is rarely a worry to run out of fuel, one can put in a little regular diesel in an emergency.
Our biodiesel cars are older cars, considered Maui Cruisers. They will have a few more scratches and bruises than the newer cars, so if you need fancy, these cars aren't for you!
You can feel great about driving a car that uses a cleaner sustainable fuel made in Hawaii! Look for the sun flowers on Maui. These are being grown for biodiesel!For more info on Biodiesel cars click here
