You might be able to mailorder some. Or perhaps buy it in bulk from a local supplier. Worst comes to worse, you could find a B100 pump within a reasonable roadtrip distance and drive there once every few months to fill a 55 gallon drum. I really think the veg oil idea is probably the best though -- you probably only need a few percent.

Propel sells their HPR ("High Performance Renewable") Diesel-like fuel in the San Jose area and other parts of the San Francisco Bay area but not yet up here in Santa Rosa. I bought a tankful yesterday while visiting forum member Sixto in San Jose. No problems so far, wish I could use it all the time.
