JOHN

i ran bio just about all the time in FREEBIRD--no problems but i did change a bunch of hoses when i got it

ran 400 gal or so thru this coach....cannot buy it

if you want a quiet and non smoking coach --run as much % as possible to 100%

I worried about it gelling in winter but in the summer ran it strong

I believe that the Love's stations in Oklahoma are beginning to offer B5 diesel as the only diesel option at their larger truck stops. So you may be able to search for the availability of those stations. On my recent trip from Oklahoma to Indiana, I noticed several stations in Missouri and Illinois often had placards indicating that the diesel may be blended with up to 15% bio.

Found this site: http://www.nearbio.com

Under the map on the main page there is a Biofuel route wizard that you can use to plan stops along your way: http://www.nearbio.com/nearbio/grouteNoSelect.php

Also on the left side of the page you will see instructions for getting bio locations using a cell phone through internet, e-mail or text messaging.

Also found this: The Biodiesel Hotline, at 866-BIODIESEL (866-246-3437)
Staffed 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. I called it and got an answer, and they can help you find Bio.

Hope these help!

Jim,
I think what is going on with diesel is two-fold.... I think they are using higher diesel prices to keep the price of gasoline lower than it would be. The other thing is that when we went to Ultra Low Sulphur diesel the Europeans started buying our diesel, since that was their standard. They had no use for Low Sulphur, but are willing to pay the big bucks for ULSD.

After looking closer at the nearbio.com site, I noticed that the site itself hasn't been updated much lately, so any info from this site might also not be very up to date. I think I might check the info against other sites before using it.....

I think Woody's biotrucker site or the biodiesel hotline would probably give the best information.

While the answer is Yes i will be taking the Wabbit to race at Bonneville, on the other hand my car is built to run in the G/GSS which is a East Coast Timing Association and Loring Timing Association legal class (G = under 2 litre engine size naturally aspirated, /G = no fuel adders and pump gas, I use a 105 octane race gas, SS = Super Street this allows the use of any appropriate class sized same brand engine in a car that is registered, licensed and insured, and has a full interior with the exception the rear seat can be removed) at Bonneville they do not have the G/GSS class and I believe that the car would run in an Altered class where the record is way beyond the capabilities of my car.

However I will enter the 150 MPH Club event and run on a 3 mile course, where the speeds are recorded entering mile 2, at the 2.5 mile point and at the end of mile 2, then you have the 3rd mile to decelerate and stop, I think that it will be a stretch for the car to be fast enough to gain entry into the 150 MPH Club but I'll find out just how fast it really is and that is what I'm going for.

There was as much as $.40 a gal. difference between the two. Now it seems to be down to $.20 or even less. Just yesterday I saw a price for gas was $3.99 and diesel was $4.05. I'm not sure anyone can make sense of what is going on with the fuel industry.
Jim, IT makes a lot of CENTS to the oil companies!

John,
When do yo expect to be at Bonneville? We are also heading out on a 20+ state tour starting mid July and end up at Rats.

I'll be in the state of Utah around September 6 and the World of Speed 2011 Race Dates on the Bonneville Salt Flats near Wendover, Utah/Nevada are September 14-17, 2011. If there are enough pre-entries the racing may start on September 13.
