Pacific Biofuel distributes B100 to two stations in our small beach town, and also sells direct in 55 and 250 gal containers. Fuel meets ASTM Specification D6751-02.
U.S.A Fueling Station at the corner of Seventh Avenue and Soquel says that their B100 is actually B99. (station changed hands -- no more biodiesel)
The former Union 76 station at Ocean Street and Soquel Avenue has been tentatively renamed EcoDepot, and will also offer electric bike sales and organic produce. They will sell only BioDiesel, no gasoline or conventional diesel.
Mountain Feed and Farm Supply in Ben Lomond claims to be the world's only solar-powered biodiesel filling station.
Energy Alternative Solutions is the main importer of biodiesel to Santa Cruz County. They are building a huge plant in Watsonville to product B100 from waste cooking oil (yellow oil). The capacity of the new plant is millions of gallons per year.
As of summer 2006, EAS was importing 27,000 gals/month of B100 from Texas.
Two of the county's school systems are running pilot programs for their oldest buses to run biodiesel. The local distributer for Budwieser is now using biodiesel in their fleets.
There is now a few dozen acres mustard seed farm in the county supplying mustard seed oil to the local biodiesel refinery for conversion to fuel for sale at the station on Ocean St. I always thought the french fry smell needed seasoning...
