TDIFest Biodiesel
 
Those that like to run bio, I have found a location that has B99 and B20. It's about 30-40 minutes from Ypsi. The location is

Wacker Oil/G.E. Wacker,Inc.
9050 Michigan State Road 52
Manchester,*MI*48158
734-428-8366

Im going to contact them to make sure they still sell B99.

Update: It is confirmed they still do have B99!

Wacker is awesome and they have supported the club by bringing a fuel truck in the past.

I'm glad you brought this up because I was considering asking them to bring a fuel truck of biodiesel this year for anyone who is interested.

They currently have BP 50 cetane fuel and B20 at their pump. I believe they also have B99 on the pump, but I didn't notice for sure when we were out there last month.

Any interest in having a fuel truck at TDIFest? Their store is located about 35 minutes west of Ypsi.

Wackers did bring a fuel truck out to the last Michigan TDIFest... as I recall it sold out and they had to bring a 2nd one in!

Im in for a B99 truck! Either way I will be going to get some.

If it's 30~40 minutes away, I'd say don't have a delivery truck at the fest.
What would they bring?
B20? What about the CRs and the 5% warranty limit? What about those of us that won't settle for B20?
B99? Except for me and a few others that want this purity or better, the B5 and B20 crowd will get just a gallon or two.

I'm betting it would be a B20 truck. But hey, after me and you went and got our B99 we could hang around the truck like the water cooler at work and try to educate. :D

I could go for a B99 truck.

Been to Wacker several times in the past decade. The Cr's gould bring a container for their purchases.

mrfrankmrfrank May 14th, 2012 11:44

I would be interested in a road trip or a b99 truck as well.

bhtooefr May 14th, 2012 13:53

Actually, if they had to bring two trucks to last MI fest...

Bring a B99 truck and a 50 CN dino truck, or maybe a B99 truck and a B5 truck?

That way, you can always splash blend to what you want, and the high quality dino is there.

That said, there's a station selling dino almost across the street from the hotel, for splash blending.

I was thinking of having them do a B99 truck and those of us who prefer a lower dosage could bring a 5 gallon can to fill up. As Jon said, a B20 truck would eliminate those folks who want the pure stuff.

rocketeer928 May 14th, 2012 18:26

Dino-diesel only for me, please. I guess I'm not educated enough to try B20.

compu_85 May 14th, 2012 18:34

Even if it ends up bring a truck of petrodiesel their 50 cetane (usually 55 when they test it) is some of the best fuel you can get!

What's needed to get a B99 truck to come?

VeeDubTDI May 15th, 2012 11:33

I'm going to call Wacker today and see if it's something that they're interested in doing and what their schedule restrictions are. Then I need to confirm that we can actually dispense fuel at the event, when and where, etc.
