A brief description of the institution’s efforts to support alternative fuel and power technology in its motorized fleet:

Oberlin College owns three electric Club Cars for campus travel. ResEd, Security, and Facilities each have a cart. Additionally, Facilities Operations replaced 3 V-8 cargo vans with Ford Transits. Due to their four-cylinder gas engines, manual transmission, lower weight and more aerodynamic design, Transits are more fuel efficient than the V-8s. At this time, the College also removed three gasoline club cars and one van from the fleet. Grounds lawnmowers and tractors are converted from diesel to run on straight vegetable oil after their warranty has expired.
