You grow soybeans. Your soybean checkoff helped develop
soy-based biodiesel Government and industry studies show
it’s good for your engines, the environment, and U,S, farmers.
Using B 2 on your farm supports the industry’s growth, by increasing
the number of suppliers for high-quality biodiesel fuel. And, a B 2
blend provides increased lubricity for your engines, a boost in cetane,
and reduced dependence on foreign oil
Delaware, Maryland & Pennsylvania Biodiesel Sources
Call ahead to ensure availability and biodiesel blends offered.
This list has been compiled by the soybean checkoff boards to help promote
biodiesel use in the Mid-Atlantic. If your biodiesel supplier is not listed, have
them call us at (571) 333-0108

SOY-BASED BIODIESEL.
Farmers are the second-largest consumers of diesel fuel
in the U.S. So when you request biodiesel, fuel suppliers will listen.
Ask your fuel supplier to carry B 2 - a two-percent blend of pure,
ASTM D-6751 quality soy-based biodiesel. It’s available throughout
the United States, so why not ask for it and use it?
Studies show that if every farmer used 82, we could utilize
more than 50 million bushels of soybeans per year - the combined
2001 annual soybean harvests of Delaware, Maryland, Pennsylvania,
New Jersey and New York. Imagine the potential.
