If he starts selling it at the Love's Truck Stop on the I-610 East Loop North Fwy, then I'll consider it. It's closer that Houston Biodiesel, which is nearly a 30 mile drive for me.

The main Willie truck stop is at Hillsboro. I have fueled up there a few times, but it is pretty much a rathole.

There was an ariticle in the Ft. Worth paper a few weeks ago stating that the sale of commercial biodiesel was temporarily outlawed in Texas. I have not heard any more about the subject since. Has anyone else heard this? At this point, they want money to view the article from the archives, or I would post the link.

Maybe you can email or call the BioWillie people and request they get a pump there. A small outfit should be interested in customer service....

I've sent an e-mail out to them. I'll let you know what they say.

I don't know about a ban in Texas, but it would make sense. The industry is run by gluttonous pigs, and they own the people in power. It's the same reason we can never get health care.

To support its December rate-increase request, the Connecticut utility Yankee Gas Services said it needs more money because too many of its customers have lowered their bills by heeding calls to conserve energy.
