Default Biodiesel at fest?

There has been talk of a biodiesel supply at the fest.
Is this a confirmed fact?
What day(s) will it be available?
What percentage (B5 , B20 , B100 ?)
What price?
What payment terms ($CND, $US, charge/debit)?
If charge, which cards accepted?

Tick-tock-tick-tock-tick-
Or rather, drip-drip-drip-drip- as a pre-Renaissance water clock might be closer analogy to the dwindling fuel in my tank. I still have enough to get there, but unless I know a supply will be on site I'll fill-up before I leave home and thus purchase that much less, if any, once there.

I'll be running on fumes when I get there, but for that prices I think I can do it.

The Biodiesel supplier has unfortunately not confirmed his presence. We have been unable to reach him as well. At this point we cannot confirm if he will be here

We continue to try and reach him.

Hers is the reply from the supplier, he will NOT be present:

Hi Steve

I gather my email did not get through to you.

The Canadian government will not allow me to import for resale without a special permit which takes about 6 months to get. I cannot use a merchant number such as that for George as he is not a registered fuel vendor
I am sorry you did not get my previous note. With the move and phone line screw ups things have been hectic. I apologize for the inconvenience.

Best Regards,

Dan Schriber
