Biodiesel In Brooklyn - bulk fuel buying group.

Hi Folks,

I have this thread going in the Alternative fuels section, but want to get some more eyes on the idea.

I'm getting some folks together to place large orders of biodiesel for storage in an accessible tank in a lot here in Brooklyn, NY. We'll order 275 gallons of B99 and B20 at a time and participating folks will be able to fill up anytime. At these quantities, the fuel will be cheaper than D2 at the pump (between 10 and 50 cents cheaper / gallon). And the more fuel we buy, the cheaper it gets. We've got the regulation issues sorted out and have a list of equipment we'll need. The missing pieces are the parking spaces and new members!

If anyone is interested in participating, please shoot me an email at We've already got enough participants to get started and I'm putting together a quick meeting of all parties so we can all get on the same page.

Hi Allen! Well back when we were having this discussion I ended up getting a really intense job that took me away from pretty much everything fun.

I still have a diesel MB but probably not the bandwidth to spearhead something like this. I would be a happy member though!
