To begin with we will only be selling to drive up customers and transport loads we have a 3,000 gallon bobtail but it needs a lot of work before we can put it back on the road. I guess the distant will depend on the volume delivering. I will try to keep checking back on this sight to keep you updated.

Bio Diesel In La Grange Texas

Here is an up date on the plant. We are having a hard time finding feed stock and a good price.
Our plant has all applicable fuel and air permits, we are a producing member of the National Bio Diesel Board; we are registered with the IRS, EPA, TCEQ and are also EPA-RFS2 Registered.
Our customers to date are large distributers in Houston, TX, Louisiana and we deliver to local customers around Fayette County. We also have had small 200 to 500 gallon customers come from as far away as Austin, TX. to pickup our fuel. We were just awarded the Bio Diesel fuel contract for Fayette County for 2011. fficeffice" />>>

I buy retail biodiesel. Would love to make it, but don't have the waste oil, time, space, patience, know-how, etc

Nearby there is a company trying to make biodiesel from algae - they are called PetroAlgae. Apparently they can make gas from it too. Right now they are trying to figure out how to make it affordable.

I have a custom wvo conversion. This vehicle is my fourth conversion. I'd rather be running biodiesel, but there is none available within 200 miles. I'd consider making my own but I don't have a space to set up a processor. I wish there was a biodiesel co-op in the area.

I just converted to 5% bio from CountryMark - Diesel Fuel, Biodiesel, Gasoline & Lubricant Products for Agriculture, Fleet & Commercial Vehicles - Serving Indiana (and parts of Ohio, Michigan & Illinois). Their oil is drilled and refined from US wells.

I have been burning WVO for about ~40K miles with a modified Vegistroke V3 system in my '02 Excursion. I'm new to this site, just surfing around a bit to get acquainted with the content.

Found B99 in Ft WorthTX

I found (TX Bio Tech) in Ft Worth. They sell B99 cash or credit. Cash is 3 cents a gal cheaper. Been very pleased with it so far. You can buy in large loads too. The fellow that fueled after me was getting 600 gallons. I bought at $3.36 a gal 3 weeks ago. I run a bone stock 7.3 super duty.
I am in no way affiliated with their business, just sharring the info. TX Biotech does not advertise but they are on the web and do answer the phone every time I called.

Not a chance of that price in Santa Fe, NM. Dino is cheaper than Bio. I payed $4.12 for dino today and B20 was selling for $4.35.

I'm thinking about a WVO conversion.
