The demonstration program established by this chapter shall be designed and administered by the Department of Energy and Conservation, with the advice and consultation of the Department of the California Highway Patrol and the superintendent. The Department of Energy and Conservation shall insure that fuel economy and exhaust emissions are monitored as a part of the demonstration, and shall ensure that at least 35 percent of the vehicles are powered by methanol or other low-emission, clean-burning fuels, unless the Department of Energy and Conservation determines on or before March 27, 1990, that the use of these funds for clean burning fuel projects is infeasible. The Department of Energy and Conservation shall, within 30 days of making that determination, submit a report to the Legislature explaining its determination with respect to the feasibility or infeasibility of the project. The field demonstration shall be in accordance with State Energy Conservation Program guidelines.
