Does anyone know of a biodiesel source/community in Minnesota?

There was a Cenex in Northfield selling biodiesel. Haven't been by there in a couple years, though.

Bio (Soy) Diesel in Minnesota

New mandate for diesel fuel in Minnesota: Effective approx. Sept. 27, 2005 - ALL diesel sold in MN has 2% soy mandated by legislation. No MN stations advertise their diesel as bio but all is now a 2% soy blend.

B100 and B20 is available at the Marathon Station in Apple Valley at c.r. 42 and Galaxy Drive or the Co-op in Belle Plaine.

So far, and unscientifically concluded, my 02 VW TDi seems to like the Premium diesel (with the now mandated 2% soy) the best purchased at the Co-op in Belle Plaine. My second choice is the mid-grade diesel (now Arctic blend and with the mandated 2% soy) purchased at Fleet Farm, and my third choice is any SA standard diesel (again, with the mandated 2% soy).

02 New Beetle, TDI, Reflex Silver, 24k

90 300E, 142k (sold)

83 300D, 314k (sold)
79 300TD, 266k (sold)
