Fuel VERIFIED


The Low Carbon Fuel Standard is designed to decrease the carbon intensity of California's transportation fuel pool and provide an increasing range of low-carbon and renewable alternatives, which reduce petroleum dependency and achieve air quality benefits. More about this program

Fuel is a cozy cafe offering delicious food and beverages in a friendly atmosphere for anyone that appreciates great taste, is looking for health conscious alternatives, and even indulgences! The menu is designed to present a variety of gourmet take-out foods in a creative, ever changing style. A fine espresso, tea, and smoothie bar includes an array of options for breakfast, lunch, and early dinner, featuring fresh ingredients and an eclectic menu. Whenever possible, locally grown produce, organic foods, and recyclable products are used. We have everything you need to fuel your body and soul! Nice outdoor patio and comfy indoor seating.


The Alternative Fuels Data Center (AFDC) provides information, data, and tools to help fleets and other transportation decision makers find ways to reach their energy and economic goals through the use of alternative and renewable fuels, advanced vehicles, and other fuel-saving measures.


President Obama directed NHTSA and EPA to develop and issue the next phase ("Phase 2") of medium- and heavy-duty vehicle fuel efficiency standards and greenhouse gas (GHG) standards by March 2016. Under this timeline, the agencies currently expect to issue a Notice of Proposed Rulemaking (NPRM) by March 2015. This second round of fuel efficiency standards will build on the first-ever standards for medium- and heavy-duty vehicles (model years 2014 through 2018).


Reason for the alert: An LF 2016 Remap FCCS fuel bed linked was incorrectly linked to a vegetation type in 20 map zones located in the South Central, Southeast, and Northeast GeoAreas.


Updated product(s) or information: LF 2016 Remap (LF 2.0.0) FCCS 2020 capable fuels products were updated on 11/01/2021. The issue is limited to 20 map zones in the South Central, Southeast, and Northeast GeoAreas of CONUS, but mosaics were also impacted.


Problem or issue description: A fuel bed within LF 2016 Remap (LF 2.0.0) 2020 capable fuels products was incorrectly linked to a vegetation type in twenty map zones (SC z32, z35, z36; SE z37, z44, z45, z46, z48, z54, z55, z56, z58, z98, z99, and NE z47, z49, z57, z59, z60, z61) located in the South Central, Southeast; and Northeast GeoAreas. The misprint in the look-up table (LUT) that associates the fuel bed to the vegetation type, showed that FCCS fuel bed 538 Pacific Limestone Forest was linked to Existing Vegetation Type (EVT)/Fuel Vegetation Type (FVT) 2575 Southeastern Ruderal Grassland and Shrubland. The correct association should be FCCS fuel bed 519 Southern Ruderal Grassland to EVT/FVT 2575 Southeastern Ruderal Grassland and Shrubland. The FCCS Master Database will also be updated to reflect this change.


Users are advised to download the updated versions of the LF 2016 Remap FCCS 2020 capable fuels products and FCCS Master Database and delete any local copies that were downloaded prior to 11/01/2021. We regret any inconvenience this may cause.


Problem or issue description: Users are advised to download the updated versions of the four fuel products listed above and delete local copies of these products that were downloaded prior to Jun 25, 2019. We regret any inconvenience this may cause.


Problem or issue description: The significant refinement for the LF Remap products mentioned above, is that they represent "capable" fuels, meaning the TSD assignments have been calculated using an effective year. For example, LF Remap fuels are now assigned for the 2019 effective year. The new process considers all incorporated disturbances in LF Remap and provides an adjustment factor to account for the TSD, making the data "capable" of representing an effective year. These capable data account for increase or decrease in fuel attributes in disturbed areas to the effective year (2019 in this case).


Given that LF Remap is circa 2016 data, it is important to note that no new disturbances are added for 2017 through 2018. Although these new disturbance data are not available yet, they are being cataloged for future use in an Update. Disturbances older than 10 years in 2019 follow the existing LF protocol for removal from Fuel Disturbance and are represented by more recent non-disturbed LF Remap vegetation. For areas that have not been disturbed, fuel is based on LF Remap vegetation, which is the newest fuel vegetation available.


The objective for this change was to improve, clarify, and simplify fuel transitions and Fuel attribute change following disturbances. By synchronizing TSDs, users may not need to do much, if any adjustments, to the vegetation and fuel conditions to represent contemporary conditions. In addition, these refinements will improve performance of fire behavior modeling when using the data operationally. Starting with the Southwest GeoArea release (which includes Northwest GeoArea fuel products), LF Remap fuels will be delivered as capable fuels for the 2019 effective year.


Users are advised to delete any local copies of these layers downloaded prior to 12-20-11 and download the current versions. We regret any inconvenience this may cause.posted 2011-12-21 Fuel layers for the Southeast (SE) GeoArea versions 1.0.5/1.1.0 (LF 2001/2008) are updated as of 12-20-11...Fuel layers for the Southeast (SE) GeoArea versions 1.0.5/1.1.0 (LF 2001/2008) are updated as of 12-20-11. LF 1.0.5/1.1.0 was delivered incrementally over the course of a year beginning in April 2010 with the SE GeoArea (zones 37, 46, 48, 54, 55, 56, 98, and 99). Remaining GeoAreas were completed over the course of the next eighteen months. Methods for completing these data were refined, including improved agricultural, urban, and riparian/wetland mapping. LANDFIRE implemented these refinements in the SE GeoAreas. The updated LF 1.0.5/1.1.0 fuel layers for the SE GeoArea include:Canopy Bulk Density (CBD)Canopy Base Height (CBH)Canopy Cover (CC)Canopy Height (CH)13 Anderson Fire Behavior Fuel Model s (FBFM13)40 Scott and Burgan Fire Behavior Fuel Models (FBFM40)Fuel Characteristic Classification System Fuelbeds (FCCS)Users are advised to delete local copies of these SE GeoArea LF 1.0.5/1.1.0 layers downloaded prior to 12-20-11 and download the updated versions. We regret any inconvenience this may cause.
