It’s 2012, and the United States has seen yet another sharp increase in gas and diesel fuel prices in-spite of lower demand. The lower demand is no doubt related to the still stale economy and the resultant belt tightening from families with unemployed members, and from consumers fearful of the slow economy.
For me there are alternative fuels to run in my 97 Dodge Ram Turbo Diesel Cummins. It readily accepts all mixes of Biodiesel including B99 and B100. I can burn Jet Fuel, Kerosene, and even veggie oil if I dilute it or heat it up to reduce viscosity.
When Diesel goes up I thank my lucky stars that my friends at Blue Sky BioFuels in Oakland can provide me with B99 Biodiesel at lower cost per gallon than petroleum based Diesel. I usually save 20 to 30 cents a gallon by buying biodiesel in the bay area. Occasionally I have to seek biofuel in Berkeley or other nearby towns if Blue Sky BioFuels is closed. Most of the time, they are open when I need biofuel, and I am a happy camper.
