Pumps open in Vermont, Tennessee

By | February 01, 2005
Three biodiesel pumps have recently opened and with favorable results. Biodiesel Magazine brings you the latest news in where consumers can purchase the renewable fuel.

In the small town of Bridport, Vt., population 1,200, biodiesel has arrived at Boise Citgo on Route 22A. The station is currently selling B20 blends, but hopes to sell B100 this summer in order to avoid clouding or gelling issues. Citgo owner Joe Boise started with 275 gallons of B20 in mid-December but demand was so great, he ran out by the end of the month. He increased his storage capacity, and a 500-gallon shipment arrived over the New Year's Eve weekend. World Energy is the station's supplier.

Benton Oil is offering B20 at its Midnite Oil station in Chattanooga, Tenn. The blend comes from U.S. Biofuels Inc. in Georgia and is made from chicken fat. It is the fifth public biodiesel station to open in east Tennessee, according to Jonathan Overly of the East Tennessee Clean Fuels Coalition. The company also opened its private 2.3 million gallon diesel terminal to the public in January, reserving a 20,000-gallon tank for B100. It will blend any amount for customers. Benton Oil serves customers mostly in Alabama, Georgia and Tennessee.
Sevier Farmers Co-op in Seiverville, Tenn., has done away with regular diesel fuel altogether and only offers B5 blends of onroad fuel at its gas station on West Main Street. Regular diesel is still used in fueling offroad vehicles, however. The station had a ceremony to celebrate the environmental move. Jeff Ailey told Biodiesel Magazine that everyone in the area is excited about the renewable fuel. The co-op ordered 6,000 gallons of biodiesel for its first shipment from Clinch River Valley Energy Group, Ailey said. City and county vehicle fleets will use this blend. The co-op plans to increase the blend to B10 in four months and B20 by next year.
