BioDiesel in East Bay Area - Where?

Looking for location to purchase B100 (or blend) in the Walnut Creek/Concord, CA areas or somewhere along the 680 corridor from Walnut Creek to East San Jose.

I know it is available in the Berkeley and Fairfield areas but would feel pretty stupid making a 50 mile round trip out of my way twice a week and then thinking I was helping the envrionment.

Prefer a commercial operation rather than homebrewed.

Any help appreciated.

Take a look here. According to them, there are two in Martinez (not too far away) and, more importantly, one on 10th St south of Spartan Stadium in San Jose.

Hope that helps

There's an Arco at I-880 one of the Hayward exits that offers biodiesel. www.arco.com has a locate feature with a biodiesel index but the website seems to be down at the moment.

When down in the Monterey Bay/ Santa Cruz area, call Ray of Pacific Biofuels for the good stuff. He's a great guy, and will deliver 55 gallon drums to your door. http://www.pacfuel.com/contact.htm

The one in San Jose is only open 9-5 mon-Fri, just to be aware. The guys there are good though... and this is ASTM certified B100.

At all but the silly Chevron that is most convienent for me between Walnut Creek and San Jose where was till 259.9 yesterday. Glad the company pays for it.

The Shell in downtown WC was 213.9 today.

Thanks to all for the BD comments. Was hoping there was somewhere slightly more convienient for me than 10st in SJ but will jsut have to live with that for now.
