Will B100 be available at Fest or close to Mason? We'll need it, driving from eastern Pennsylvania.

I've found a B100 station in Salem, OH (Youngstown area) that I have contacted to confirm they can fuel my car. I'll call them again this coming week to re-confirm and to ask their current price.
For me Salem is right about my driving range limit and 2/3 of the way to Mason. Meaning I'll be nearly empty when I drive through there on the way back home to fill again for the final leg.

none for now
I think it is an issue of how to distribute the BD at the fest. Rich, I've called a couple equipment rental shops just south of Dayton regarding a fuel cell and pump with a meter with no luck.

If you are coming down I-71 from Cleveland to Columbus, stop at exit 151 and try the Sunoco station on the West side of the exit. (sign on highway indicates Biodiesel available) On my way home to Cincinnati from New York tonight I snap this pricing photo on the 'renewable fuels pump.'

I called Salem Oil to re-confirm and now am told that they can't pump into the road vehicles due to road tax not being paid. They can pump into jugs, and the tax liability for where you use that fuel is then yours.
Even though no tax is paid it's presently $5 per gallon.
And now they will not be open Monday, Labor Day.

Looks like this fest is BYOB.

B100? Best of luck separating the soy from the chaff in that 20% blend.
Vegan? Order the steak with the onion rings, then eat only the rings.

It's too bad we can't bring a large tank from Dexter MI... the TA has B10 for $4.07 today, it was 4.03 earlier this week.
