Awesome! Hopefully they can. Because if I understood them correctly, they don't have a B99 pump, just a holding tank they pull from. So either the truck coming to the fest or they having a truck at their location is our only option.

I think you're right about the B99 pump disappearing a few years ago. I'm waiting for a call back from Tim @ Wacker as I write this message... apparently he is out fixing one of his trucks.

I do know meijer in Ypsilanyi and Ann Arbor Saline road have Bio pumps. I believe its rated at b20 and up. . Both locations are ~10-15 minutes away from the fest location.

We tried for some of their Bio several years ago at an Auto Show G2G. It ended up with one person's Benz coming off the road and Oilhammer's car getting stuck on the side of the road from all the algae growing in the tank.

I've not been back sense.

For clarification, "their" is one of the Meijers, but I don't remember which one. The algae issue is not in reference to Wacker.

Wacker's has some of the best fuel in the country... it was often out of my way to go there, and I did every chance I got!

I am in for the B99 will take it back with me in a couple of jugs to blend in my 300 gallon tank for lubrication, at a very low rate for sure with the CR.

I haven't heard back from Wacker yet regarding availability. I'll follow up again tomorrow or on Monday... I don't want to be a pest.

55 Cetane D2 and some splash blend sounds really good to me. Would they sell more D2 or B99 at the GTG with the expense and labor of driving a fuel truck out there?

Just spoke with Tim at Wacker and he's kicking around the idea of a B99 truck at Fest. If they don't bring a truck out, the station is still open Monday - Saturday from 7am - 9pm and Sunday from 8am - 9pm. They removed their B99 pump four years ago due to a drop in sales when the $1/gallon credit for B99 expired.

Sounds good. If they don't want to bring a truck out I wonder if we need to make a call before we head out there so they can get a truck, auxiliary tank, or whatever they may use to fuel us on their site ready?

That was another thing we discussed - the availability of B99 at their station on the weekend of Fest. I'll let you know what I find out when Tim touches base with me again.

I would think 55 cetane D2 would sell better.Because all the car can use it.That my 2 cents.

Mine doesn't. It could, but it doesn't, and it won't.
You may as well tell a vegan that they can eat pen raised veal.

When contacting Wacker and possibly having B99 available, also ask about their Monday holiday hours.
