Biodiesel on CarTalk

Did anyone else hear the piece on CarTalk today by the woman who was getting biodiesel delivered to her house in 55 gallon drums? I didn't catch where she was from but a local oil company (Sequential??) was selling a combination of used fry oil and fresh vegetable oil for diesels. Anyone else doing this? I don't think she mentioned the price but I wondered what was happening with the road tax.

I get my bio at the pump from sequential. i asked about the road tax if i bought a drum. said i didnt have to pay the road tax since they have no idea what i would be using that drum for since it can be used as a heating fuel too.
their bio is from soy stock too.

Hey Kerry:

Keep this post going. Any idea on the cost of a 55 gal drum of biodiesel?

I read the article but it didn't say how to get the drum or what it might cost.

a barrel of b100 is going to run about 165 dollars.
