  Guizhou was listed as a methanol-fueled vehicle pilot area by the Ministry of Industry and Information Technology in 2015 and currently has the most methanol-fueled vehicles of any province in China.
  According to the guideline released by the Ministry of Industry and Information Technology and seven other ministries on March 19, China will accelerate the application of M100 methanol-fueled vehicles in Guizhou and other provinces.
  It is reported that Guiyang currently has 23 methanol filling stations and 15 of them have been put into operation. The city has the highest number of methanol filling stations across China to meet local demand.
  The greenhouse gas emission of methanol-fueled vehicles is about 80 percent lower compared to traditional gasoline vehicles. In addition, methanol-fueled vehicles are widely acclaimed by drivers because of their low cost and high stability.
  "The average fuel consumption of a methanol-fueled taxi is 15 litres per hundred kilometers, a cost about 20 to 30 percent lower than a traditional gasoline vehicle," said Lu Wenqiang, a taxi driver from Guizhou Jideshi Taxi Co Ltd.
