Vehicles, equipment, and the fuels that power them have changed significantly in recent years. Alternative fuels are becoming increasingly more available in the marketplace. National, state, and local goals for reducing vehicle emissions and increasing the use of domestic and renewable fuel sources have required new pollution control equipment, reduced sulfur levels in fuel, and increased use of biofuels like ethanol and biodiesel.
Please join us for an in-depth overview of petroleum fuels (gasoline/diesel), ethanol, biodiesel, and renewable diesel; their characteristics, benefits, and considerations; and storage and handling best practices. We invite anyone interested in participating: B20 Club members, Clean Cities coalitions, fleet managers, mechanics, and more.
MEG Corp is an ASE-Accredited CASE Provider to administer and issue Continuing Automotive Service Education (CASE) CEUs. CEUs will be available for eligible participants. To qualify as a CASE activity and meet the criteria to earn CEUs, participants must complete and submit the following materials:
*An 80% or higher score is required to receive a “Certificate of Completion” to obtain the CEU. Participants who do not receive at least an 80% receive a “Certificate of Attendance.”
We also ask that you complete the survey emailed to the participants 30 days after the workshop. Although this is not a requirement to earn CEUs, your feedback is valuable to gauge whether the information covered was valuable and applicable to your professional life. Participants who complete the exit survey will also receive a chance to win a 20-quart RTIC cooler.
Four virtual fuel workshops will cover information on petroleum fuels, ethanol, biodiesel, and renewable diesel. The workshops are free of charge. The sessions repeat to allow attendance flexibility. The workshops will run for an estimated 2.5 hours on Tuesday, June 22nd, and Thursday, July 22nd. A .25 CEU will be offered once the participants meet all criteria (1 CEU credit requires 10 hours of contact time, 2.5-hour workshops = .25 CEUs). Below you will find the available time slots and associated registration links:

The goal of our automotive service education is to disseminate the most up-to-date information about the fuels and technologies available today. This knowledge allows industry professionals to diagnose fuel-related issues accurately, answer customer questions, and provide recommendations about proper fuel handling and use best practices. The program also encourages the adoption of alternative fuels and technologies, like ethanol and biodiesel, as a strategy for combating climate change and protecting human health. If you have questions regarding this program or available alternative fuels, please contact CleanAir@Lung.org.
