i'm working on reviving this, and starting to contact potential hosts for space, if anyone is interested or wants to help figure it out!

baltimore biodiesel has an amazing 24/7 self serve setup, but it's not cheap to set up.

Strange result. My w210 E300 and my VW TDI both run so much smoother and quieter on Biodiesel. It's a very noticeable improvement, at least in these two cars.

I would like to have a B100 or even B20 pump in the Northern Virginia area. There used to be one years ago by the Pentagon, but it has since closed down. Now there is no Biodiesel anywhere in NoVA that I'm aware of.

Ya it's weird to me, my results have just been the opposite. I have a supplier at $1.25 a gallon. So it's a unbeatable deal but just .makes my car run very very rough ...

I wonder if he is processing the fuel incorrectly or something?

I see issues with fire code compliance and maybe state / federal sales tax + road use tax.

I see issues with the guy who drives the most getting 100 gallons of gas for the same price as the guy who only gets 20 gallons.

Is this just honor system based?
