you can get B20 at the shell on johnson near Park turnoff...
Shelby NC has a few B20 stations... nobody I've found yet has anything higher.
I have great plans in my head to start making some...

line up some WVO sources first, you'll likely have to pay for it.

How to Make Biodiesel at Home is one of the best resources. Good luck

Metrolina Biofuels sometimes sells retail. I'm not sure if you can get into that coop or not.

Their website and FB both seem quite old.

I know fo'sho that there is B100 bio-diesel in Winnsboro SC and in NC in asheville,carrboro,greensboro. Certain Sphinx in upstate SC have B20.

You can try this site or this one, but neither one is much better than the other one listed above. None of the biodiesel sites do a good job updating information.

That's fantastic!

How much information was available about making biodiesel when you first started?
