The State of Biodiesel
After taking a beating in 2010 because of the expiration of the Biodiesel Blender's credit, the US Biodiesel industry is finally picking up some steam again. According to this article, the industry is on track to nearly double the amount of biodiesel produced in this country for 2011.
Fuel quality is a critical issue in any vehicle. How do we know that the fuel we buy for our vehicles is of high quality and will not cause problems, and also maximize performance? How is quality ensured in production and distribution? What does the state do to ensure quality? What is involved in testing biodiesel?

Are local and state governments using biodiesel fuel to lower their carbon footprints? If so, who is using biodiesel fuel, how much are they using, and whom are they purchasing from? How are these decisions made and why?
Ever wonder what cars can run biodiesel? Will the 2011 cars work with biodiesel? Do you need to make modifications? Can you get a diesel smart car? A small truck? Do you need to do anything special to your car in the winter? Can you buy an old Mercedes diesel and run biodiesel in it?
The NW Biodiesel Network is hosting its first Biodiesel Car Show and Education Forum focused on mechanical issues on Saturday, August 20, from 12-3 pm. We will have cars there for you to view and experts there to answer your questions.
