T. H. Malloy didn't have B99 2 weeks ago... cold seasonal issues I presume.
So I went straight to the source (Newport Biodiesel). 105 gallons for under $2 per gallon.

That is an amazing price. Here in CA, we can't seem to get biodiesel for less than $3-$4/gallon.

wanted to add for NJ: Woolley Fuel in Maplewood

http://www.woolleyfuel.com/

they have B5 through B30 (higher blends by request).

They do have public pumps (and allegedly the ONLY public pump in NJ).

Also, they have Diesel 2.

Finding the pumps is a bit tough as they're tucked away under a little shed-like enclosure inside a parking lot off the main road. while I was there there were several local landscaping trucks waiting to fill up. Volume seems good as they primarily focus on "bulk sales" by the truck and home heating fuel.

I just filled up there today, very nice people and it's a "serve yourself" type of place where you pull up to a pump of your choosing (which blend you want etc) and just pump... you go inside the office after you fill up, pay what you owe and off you go.

it's convenient for me since it's only 5 min from my job :P


EDIT: I called today and found out the Cetane rating is a minimum of 47... not bad as everywhere else nearby has a 40 sticker on the pump.

Bentley Nevada, in Minden, Nevada no longer sells any fuel at the retail level. There are no biodiesel sellers in the Carson City (next to Minden) area either. I will double check this coming week to see what kind if any bio is still available in the greater Reno area. I like to run 1 quart of B99 per tank of dino to help keep the fuel system clean and the injectors running as smoothly as possible. I generally buy 2 tanks of fuel a month, so a 5 gallon jug should last a while. If I can find it.

Sad to hear. I would buy from them when traveling to Reno. The last time I was there was two years ago.

In my experience, at 6000' elev. for the last 8 years, a slight loss of power (negligible, really) and within 1-2 mpg less than regular D2. The tradeoff is a happy IP and engine over the long term and lower emissions (NOx possibly excepted) and better tailpipe smell. Plus not supporting petrol companies (if it's made from waste grease).

Cold weather awareness is important as is blending accordingly. Carry a spare fuel filter if you are brave and run high blends in winter. An inline coolant heater/Frostheater helps with cold weather worries.

I stopped by the Exxon at the corner of 64th street and Byron road in Zeeland, MI today.
They have B5 ($2.68), B10 ($2.72), B15 ($2.76), AND B20 ($2.80).
Much better price and selection than the Mobil up on Alpine in Grand Rapids(B5=$3.51 and B20=$3.61), but given those are the only two places I can get my Bio fix, in the course of a regular week for me, I ain't complaining. Just saying.

Whoa, this price is amazing! Usually prices are not lower than $3 for biodiesel.

A couple of months ago I was in in Reno at the Allied Fuel Stop and paid $4.50 IIRC for B99 per gallon. I put two gallons in my Jerry jug to take home with me. I don't know what the price today is, but they are find-able through Google.

I remember 7 or 8 years ago I paid $5.99 a gallon for B99 at Bently Nevada. I was willing to pay the extra to stick it to the man, so-to-speak. Granted D2 was $4.75 a gallon back then so it wasn't that big of a deal. One of these days I will be removing my Greasecar kit from my Jetta; I haven't used it in years so it is for sale, especially if you want to remove it yourself. Even cheaper if you want to remove it yourself.

Do you happen to know if Bently Biofuels is still in business? Last time I filled up at the Minden pumps was a few years back while visiting family in Carson Valley.

Wondering the same. IRC, I stopped by there approximately 2 years ago and the location was closed.
