In my part of South Carolina...

I purchased some for $3.35/gal. I just recently purchased a 40ft motorcoach. It has a 191 gal tank!!!!!! Dear Lord in heaven, that's $639 for one tank at 8 miles per gallon!

Yeah, is that for B100? B20?

I bought my MH about 5 yrs ago.....gas was $1.59 a gallon.
8mpg, yeh right, down hill with a good tailwind maybe.
best I ever got was 7.8mpg with the cruise locked on @ 56mph
Pissed alot of folks off that day on I95.

I am hopping the price dips again before May when I will be heading to Pa. with it.
I only have a 100 gal. tank in mine so I need to stop more often.

Cheapest I can find in Phoenix (Mesa) is $3.57. Where do you get biodiesel, I've only seen western states petro and i've heard they put some restrictions on that even.

Drove by the chevron on the way home from work.. its up to $3.61... as well as the Sunoco

I'll use the chevron because they have the high flow pumps... but its weird.. chevron charges $3.61 for diesel if I use a credit card... and like .10 less for cash..

Sunoco lets me use debit so its instant.. chevron has yet to deduct(and this was last week!)

I think its back to sunoco

I need to see if there big rig pumps will fit my car

I just saw 3.68 in St. Paul the other day.
And to top it off the the Minnesota legislature yesterday(2-25) in there wisdom decided that now is a good time to raise the fuel tax by another 7 cents
Thank you DFL

Biodiesel

Bio-D at T-Gill Fuels in Pensacola FL is coming in some 20c/gal cheaper than dinoD, for B99. They're getting soy oil from a processor in Natchez MS.

If y'all want to know where to get bio-D

www.biodiesel.org

has maps for distributors awa retail stations. The maps usually tell the percentage of bio-D at each station.

1,229$CA/L here in Montreal yesterday. That's 4,62$/USG! And Canadian and US dollars are still at par, so don't count on that to bring cost down!

Bye
