Sir Richard Branson's FFV

November 15, 2006

Seems that the Virgin boss is quite the environmentally sound driver. Not only is Sir Richard Branson an adventurer at heart, he supports E85 and is now zipping around in his Saab 9-5 BioPower, a flexible fuel vehicle.

According to, a UK motoring search engine, Sir Richard said

“I am convinced that biofuels are the way forward, both for the car and aviation industries, which is a vision we share with Saab. Now we need to extend that vision to others.  It's high-time that flex-fuel cars, such as the Saab 9-5 BioPower, are given the same concessions in the UK as other green cars, like for example, exemption from London's Congestion Charge.” 

It's nice to see a more reknown icon support the efforts of bioethanol. Goodonya, Sir Richard.
