Biofuels via cellphone: "More people would be likely to refuel with biodiesel if
they knew where to find a filling station .. NearBio delivers a
database of more than 1,000 biodiesel sellers to mobile phones via WAP
(wireless access protocol) or text messaging. The free applet and
service from WHDC of Nevada City, CA, provides driving directions, the
phone number and the blends available at the five closest locations.
Since most of the diesel engines in the U.S. are inside of trucks,
truck drivers who can factor biodiesel stations into their routes are
the most likely beneficiaries of this service. The number of biodiesel
stations is increasing rapidly and NearBio says it will add new
locations within a day. " 11:01:21 AM
