Can I revive a zombie thread? Where are Ann Arbor folks going for their BD these days? Seems at least the Saline Rd Meijer no longer has it.

I just became a TDI-er last week, so only on my first tank of petrodiesel. I drive Ann Arbor to Troy for work. Doesn't appear, according to the various websites, to be anything along that route.

Yeah, although I don't live in MI any more I travel back often enough to know that Meijers stopped selling bio at the beginning of this year at all of their stores. Other than that I don't know any retailers in your area.

Not terribly far from where I work. Probably worth the slight out-of-the-way trip to get there. Seems to be the only BD option anywhere near where I work (Troy) or live (Ann Arbor). The Google Street View shows the biodiesel price at 2.19. Unfortunately, the phone is from May 2009.

Thanks,
I'll link to this thread from the biodiesel thread in the '12 Fest group.
Now that Wacker is not selling high bio blends it's nice to have knowledge of others in the region.

Only thing is that I think wacker was their supplier and they were low on supply.
