Isn't this a pretty thorough listing of biodiesel sources?

Nope-
No site I've found so far is consistant or complete.
There is a US Gov site (http://www.eere.energy.gov/afdc/) that gives partially overlapping data. I've also seen another list somewhere, but don't remember where. None of them have matched even 90%, each having 2-10 stations not listed on the other. Currently that's my biggest problem- finding out where I CAN buy it.

I know of several not listed in WI-

Flood Oil, Eden WI any blend (seperate B100 tank)
Cenex Co-op, Broadway Ave, Madison WI ( B5 & USLD B5, Unmanned station)
Prairie Fire Biofuels (http://www.prairiefirebiofuels.org/) Madison WI (B100, Saturday only for now)

For example, we (Blue Ridge Biofuels) keep B99.9 and B20 available in Asheville, NC. (Gas-Up, 405 Haywood Rd., Asheville, NC 28806)

It actually does not take that long for NBB to create a listing, but they have never updated ours.

Two Ann Arbor, Michigan area Meijer's gas stations carry "Biodiesel." Labeled plainly as just that. When they initially offered it, they put information right on the pump that it was B20. Now it just says "Biodiesel" with no other information. It could be B100 for all I know (in all likely hood it's not. But there's no info).

All the online sources I find state Meijer's is using B20... No word on anything different yet. I've run several tanks of their "biodiesel" with no negative effects.

Meijer Fueling Station
3145 Ann Arbor Saline
Ann Arbor, MI 48103

This is the one I normally go to:

Meijer Fueling Stations
3995 Carpenter Rd.
Ypsilanti, MI 48197

Of note: I rarely see the Ann Arbor-Saline road store. I always goto the one on Carpenter as it's in between work and home. The biodiesel is always priced exactly the same as their normal "premium diesel."

Just got my 2006 Jetta TDI, which now has 500 miles on it. Just added my first B5 mix. It seems to run quite well.

Houston Biodiesel sells B100 and B99. So you're gonna have to mix it yourself, if you want to run B5, or B20, or more.
