Branson committed to greener fuel

SIR Richard Branson has taken delivery of a Saab 9-5 BioPower, which runs on bioethanol E85.

Pledging his commitment to the fuel, 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 are given the same concessions in the UK as other green cars like, for example, exemption from London’s congestion charge.’
