Let Biodiesel Pumping Begin

A fueling station in San Francisco is the first to offer pure biodiesel to motorists at a public pump. The biodiesel pump — the result of a partnership between Olympian Inc., World Energy Alternatives and CytoCulture — opened May 23.

A similar fueling station in Sparks, NV, near Reno, is also offering 100% biodiesel, as well as B20, a blend of 20% biodiesel and 80% diesel.

Biodiesel is a cleaner-burning alternative fuel that can be burned in any diesel vehicle with little or no engine modification.

Biodiesel and biodiesel blends, which have been successfully tested over more than 40 million miles, are being used by more than 80 major fleets nationwide.
