Earlier this month, the Fourth Annual Green Grand Prix took place in Watkins Glen, in New York. And guess what won their miles-per-gallon competition? A biodiesel-powered Harley-Davidson!

In the Doris Bovee Memorial SCCA road rally, with 46 participants using ten fuel types, Bill Bolch’s biodiesel-powered, 1990-model Harley FX12P did an amazing 89mpg and came out on top. Competitors were using all kinds of fuel – natural gas, petrol-electric hybrids, solar power, hydrogen fuel cells and even wood!
