Fiji villagers on Koro Island have adapted to the use of bio-fuel which they believe is cheaper and cleaner than diesel.
The vice chairman of Koro Bio-diesel Cooperative Ltd, Tevita Vunileba, said there were 14 villages on the island, of which 13 had generators.
He said five generators used bio-diesel fuel which was available from the Koro Bio-diesel mill on the island.
The Fiji Times reports him saying they are saving money and generators will get a longer life.
Mr Vunileba said he hoped that the rest of the villages would switch to bio-diesel which would be cheaper for them and good for the environment.
