Thumbs up GTG and Grand Opening of Canadian Green Fuels in Regina on June 23rd

We have been invited to the Grand Opening of the Canadian Green Fuels BioDiesel Plant in Regina on June 23rd.

They are asking if we want to do a show and shine and probably test some of the new product line.

The plant is located at 1620 McAra Street, Regina, SK.

I will be talking more with Mike when I get off the road for the weekend.

I will keep you informed!

PS It wouldn't hurt to send Mike an Email requesting more info.

I would think that plant tours will be going on through out the day.

They crush their own canola and produce their own electricity in this process.

So come on down for a visit.

Hey PapaBare, its been a long time since that dyno day, good thing sombody has an ear out for events pertaining to us! And I see you changed your signature, I would like to go for a ride in your car now!
I have got a bit of work to the beetle before it will be ready for a show and shine, I hit a rabbit. kinda ironic, I used to own one.
But, I will see if I can make it, sounds like a great tour and I look forward to seeing you and your wife again.

A separate Show & Shine will be held on Saturday June 23rd for VW TDI's. from 11:00 AM to 2 PM.

Mike has asked what size of containers he should have on hand and I indicated that 3L per tank brings us up to the B5 that VW covers on warranty but I know that I am taking my 135L in to be filled before then.

Please contact Jillian directly at jgawley@cangreenfuels.ca for pricing information.

I would not be helping anybody if I were to pass on the wrong info to you folks.

just my personal opinion, I think they are not going to be selling as B100%, but I could be wrong,
about the winter blend, theres all kind of additives, on the safety side you would be able to run B20% on the very cold days...

theres lots of web-site about biodiesel and renewable energy..
