Where is the closest place for BIODiesel

I am trying to find the closest place for biodiesel, I am in downers grove. I did find a place close to my fiances out in Momence but I would like to find somewhere close to my house to buy it during the week.. Any Ideas? is there a website with biodiesel listings and where to buy or a list of diesel prices?

I would like to learn how to make my own, but I'm sure my neighbors would love me if my garage looked like a meth lab...

Where was this road pilot?

When I'm out by my fiance's near Kankakee, they have a place that has biodiesel it's 2.59 there also

Only places that are really close to that sell diesel is Thorton's it's usually 2.69

For me to goto lombard I would imagine is 4 miles or more one way maybe 10 round trip (I'm just guessing) So for the 10 cent price difference, I would spend more going to get the fuel then the 2 dollar savings if I am filling up 20 gallons...

.10(cents) x 20 gallons = 2.00 Savings..... 10miles is close to what I get per gallon and a gallon is 2.60 so I loose 60 cents...

When I mentioned the Road Pilot in lombard, I was just reposting someone else saying that there was biodiesel there.
I was delivering pizzas last night for Giordanos in Glen Ellyn
$2.59 is better than $2.71 by my house
most stations in the Dupage area selling diesel for $2.82 and I try to find the cheapest and just run PowerKleen at every fill up

It's hard to find it in the winter as the cloud point is about 15* higher. But most roadrangers use bio but dont tell you it is so they can make the 18 cents per gal more other wise I think you will have to ask the places that have diesel. Keep in mind that most wont tell you the have bio so they make the extra money. Other wise I know that petro in rochelle down 39 and the roadranger across the road sell bio.

Old thread, but wanted to let folks know that Feece Oil has 100% soy bio in Batavia. I think there are a couple of other Feece locations as well.

Unfortunately, it's $5.70 or so a gallon.
