Wow, how forward thinking of them.

Actually, its good. I'm just frustrated with how slow big companies move sometimes. Hopefully this is the first of many increases in their support for biodiesel. If the manufacturers don't get behind it, no one will.

peace,
sam

bhd,
Unfortunately, B5 = 5%, B20 = 20% B50 = 50% & B100 = biodiesel 100%
Perhaps this will be the "thin edge of the wedge" and VW USA will increase the % as they build on their experience.
