Alternative fuels and technology auto expo in Steamboat attracts everything from buses to bikes


The parking lot of Eleanor Bliss Center for the Arts at the Depot was filled Tuesday afternoon with green cars of every color.

The Alternative Fuels and Gas Saving Technology Expo attracted a propane powered school bus, a vintage hybrid diesel/recycled-cooking-oil vintage Mercedes, a hulking hydrogen fuel Hummer, a sporty Chevy Volt and a delicate little open-sided GEM electric car made by Polaris. And if you like your hybrids Euro style, there was even a sleek looking Porsche.
