I'm looking to get 5-10 gallons to use as an additive to the pump diesel I normally get. The only source I've found is in New Haven and they only sell B20. Anyone have a source for B100 that is somewhat local?

If your "additive" isn't going to be more than 20%, then buy jugs of the B20.
You want B5? One gallon of B20 and Four of ULSD will be .2 of bio and 4.8 of diesel. That's 4% but leaves you room for error without chancing exceeding the '10's limit of B5

To all, I just picked up 335 gals. of B99. I haven't blended it yet so it's neat. I can sell you the small quantity you're looking for.

B100 is difficult to find in CT. I did call Taylor Oil but they said they only dispense 1,000 gallons!!! I did e-mail them and will see if they can dispense 5 gallons which is a more reasonable quantity. I'll let you know what they say

Thanks rd, when I called them they didn't have any in Portland and no plan to bring any in the future. For a thousand gallons it would be worth it for them to truck it in though. Might have to make a road trip to Pittsfield soon.
