Are you cutting through Canada or staying in the states?

If staying in the states, try Full Circle Fuels 141 South Main St Oberlin, OH 44074; 440-574-5436. Looks to be < 800 mi from your parts. They have B100.

Was planning on staying in the states but that can always change.
Thanks for the info Logan! Much appreciated!

Beware of the Meijer stations around the Fest location. One of them, in particular, has a history with algae.

If I need fuel when I'm heading up into Michigan, I usually stop at the Pilot at 223 and 23 in Ottawa Lake, MI. Exit 5, signs for Blissfield and Adrian. They've got B10, at least.

B5...(I know, I know...practically D2...) @ Mid-Wood co-op on gypsy lane rd in Bowling green,
Ohio. It's my regular fuel-up and it's on the way for anyone coming up I-75. PM me for specific directions or google it! They are 24 hours and credit only. There is a kiosk...make sure to select pump no 5. It's the only car nozzle.

My regular fill-up is at the BP/Englefield Oil commercial filling station on Union St. in Newark, and they've got a few stations in the Columbus area, too. They've got B5, B10, and B20 at the pump.

If you want another B99 choice, there is JatroDiesel; 845 North Main Street Miamisburg, OH‎ 45342. Its in the Dayton region. They are open 8-5 M-F and anybody heading north through Ohio will have to pass the exit. I know I will be stoping in, and Jon aka Lug_Nut stopped in today.

And I'll be back in the morning. I had an errand to run and need to top off before leaving the Dayton area.
Their posted hours are open at 8 am, but expect to hang around for 30+ minutes until someone actually shows up.
They have fuel, presently B100, $3.59 per gallon available from the tanker at the offices there on Main. It's not needed to cross the river to the production site. The pump display at the office is in error by a measured percentage. Jatro have a multiplier factor to correct the pump display to true dispensed volume.

Which Meijer, the one at 3825 Carpenter? That looked to be the closest with B20.

Which Meijer station near where the fest was in Michigan has the algae problem? I live nearby in Canton Michigan I usually use the Kroger diesel, and Power Service (Diesel Kleen +Cetane boost) additive.
