Probably cause it was a whole 5 cents more expensive and freakin people are so caught up in this damn high fuel prices that they would rather go down the road for a whole $1.50 less per fill than to help out the economy and the American Farmer.....

you might be right Dan.... We have a Bio manufacturer about 30 miles away from us, I was thinking of talking to them about bulk purchases.

Even when this station sold the bio it was the cheapest place in town to fuel at. :shrug:

The only thing that changed was they installed new tanks. went from above ground to inground. I can't figure what differance that would make on selling Bio or not.

Contact him, maybe he will put in a 500 gallon or so aboveground of you can get some interest. I am going to start trying to get Bio in bulk, DJ told me those are the cleanest motors inside, the ones that have ran bio.

Sux that you've might have lost your Bio connection. Some stations get a little miffed when the bio manufacturer can't keep up with demand, or is inconsistant with they're deliveries, not say that happened.

We've finally got some interest going around the Asheville area. I believe we've got 4 different stations selling either B20 or B50 around here.

Just give it a little more time and I think Bio will become much more accessible.
