      Biodiesel's only drawback is more NOX emissions. Everything else is lowered considerably......
      Algae and Jatropha are 2 alternatives to the food vs. fuel debate. Jatropha can be grown on arid land, negating the use of fertile soils used for food. And over time, Jatropha can fill that land with nutrients as well.
      Algae can be cultivated in many places, but I'm told it is still in it's infancy regarding oil conversion. If I am incorrect, share the wealth.

      In Tucson, AZ:
      KubotaPowered mentioned Arizona Petroleum at 1015 South Cherry. They have B5, B20 and B99.
      It seems Roadrunner has stopped supplying the Go Go Mart at Broadway & Plumer. Shame -- that was good stuff.
      There's a new one though: at a Shell station, of all places: 1701 N. Alvernon Way. B99.
      There's also a B99 station at the Catalina Mart at 12030 N. Dove Mountain Blvd. in Marana.
      Haven't tried either of these last two.
      There are also a couple of WVO cooperatives in the area. A friend operates one, but they're running at full capacity.

      awesome, diesel prices are going down a few cents in some areas here.
      wonder how long this trend will continue?

      B20 retail pump in Cleveland, OH:
      Rapid Stop Fuel Station and Convenience Mart at the
      Corner of E. 55th St. and Payne Ave
      This location is convenient to I-90 if you are passing through town.

      I was there yesterday (October 8, 2008) and while they sell diesel, they don't carry BioDiesel. It's also in a really sketchy area.
      I'm visiting Columbus, OH now; where can I get B20 here?

      Not pay by pump, but pay by subscription. Prices are usually negotiable.
      NOT ASTM CERTIFIED BIODIESEL.

      Found an automated station north of Columbus, OH that sells Diesel and B20 BioDiesel. I was told by a bus driver filling up that pump #10 is the one with B20 and my receipt confirmed it. There was also a pump for 100-something octane gasoline, but I didn't investigate or commit the octane rating to memory.

      New Shell station in Sumner, WA, just off highway 167 has B100 at several pumps... It looked like B100 anyway, it was only labeled "BIODIESEL". $5.99 a gallon.

      Hasan.

      Truck Town Terminals or enter "Truck Town Terminals" into Google Maps. It's very close to the 401's James Snow Parkway exit. Go north from the 401, James Snow Parkway will end at a T-intersection with Steeles, make a right, the right lane will end, turn into the first driveway on the right. Drive straight along the building then left, B20 is in the leftmost pump. Call from the phone on the island or walk inside and ask for the pump to be turned on. It's discounted if you pay cash vs. credit card.

      Hi, I own two stations in chicago area 3738 S. Cicero (US Rt 50), Stickney, Il and 4300 S. Union Ave, Chicago. They each have winterized Bio-Diesel B-11 which is 11% Bio. It should be noted that almost all truck stops and gas stations in Illinois have only B-11. This is due to a sales tax break which is generally passed on to consumers. Diesel users in the Northern climates or drivers passing through areas with temperatures reaching + 10 degrees F. or less should ensure that the fuel has additives to take the CFPP (Cold Filter Plug Point for a 10 Micron filter) to -15 degree F or more. Most big operators like truck stops will purchase their fuel with additives in the delivery but also sell several over the counter products. It is also wise to occasionally use additives which absorb water (condensation forms in diesel on-board tanks mush quicker that gasoline due to the presence of gas vapors). Gas stations which do not sell much diesel may not have these products. I have a question is what problems will be faced from using B-11 as opposed to the B-5 recommended in the manual????? Thanks, Bob

      theres bio at western reserve in middlefield ,oh at rt 608 and 87.

      Just FYI, i was at Milton Truck Town Terminals Jan 15th, and apparently they are not selling BD anymore. Pump 1 (the BD pump) is turned off, with a $0.00 price on the pump, and there's a sign on the cashier door (which annoyed me - why not put it on the pump so i don't have to act like an idiot waving at you from the pump?) that basically says:
      "as of Jan 1st, 2009, TTT will no longer be selling BioDiesel due to cost and lack of availability"
      Sad.

      YES finally i don't have togo way the hell out of my way to get bio. and its B20 which is the stuff i have been wanting to use i would like a bigger bio percentage like b50 but this is cool beans for me and the car loves it>
