Default TDIFest Biodiesel

Those that like to run bio, I have found a location that has B99 and B20. It's about 30-40 minutes from Ypsi. The location is

Wacker Oil/G.E. Wacker,Inc.
9050 Michigan State Road 52
Manchester,*MI*48158
734-428-8366

Im going to contact them to make sure they still sell B99.

Update: It is confirmed they still do have B99!

Wacker is awesome and they have supported the club by bringing a fuel truck in the past.

I'm glad you brought this up because I was considering asking them to bring a fuel truck of biodiesel this year for anyone who is interested.

They currently have BP 50 cetane fuel and B20 at their pump. I believe they also have B99 on the pump, but I didn't notice for sure when we were out there last month.

Any interest in having a fuel truck at TDIFest? Their store is located about 35 minutes west of Ypsi.

Wackers did bring a fuel truck out to the last Michigan TDIFest... as I recall it sold out and they had to bring a 2nd one in!

If it's 30~40 minutes away, I'd say don't have a delivery truck at the fest.
What would they bring?
B20? What about the CRs and the 5% warranty limit? What about those of us that won't settle for B20?
B99? Except for me and a few others that want this purity or better, the B5 and B20 crowd will get just a gallon or two.

I'm betting it would be a B20 truck. But hey, after me and you went and got our B99 we could hang around the truck like the water cooler at work and try to educate.

Actually, if they had to bring two trucks to last MI fest...

Bring a B99 truck and a 50 CN dino truck, or maybe a B99 truck and a B5 truck?

That way, you can always splash blend to what you want, and the high quality dino is there.

That said, there's a station selling dino almost across the street from the hotel, for splash blending.

I was thinking of having them do a B99 truck and those of us who prefer a lower dosage could bring a 5 gallon can to fill up. As Jon said, a B20 truck would eliminate those folks who want the pure stuff.

Dino-diesel only for me, please. I guess I'm not educated enough to try B20.

Even if it ends up bring a truck of petrodiesel their 50 cetane (usually 55 when they test it) is some of the best fuel you can get!

What's needed to get a B99 truck to come?

I'm going to call Wacker today and see if it's something that they're interested in doing and what their schedule restrictions are. Then I need to confirm that we can actually dispense fuel at the event, when and where, etc.
