Propel Fuels Expands B20 Biodiesel Availability in Northern Calif.

August 04, 2011

REDWOOD CITY, CA - Propel Fuels has begun selling B20 (20 percent biodiesel, 80 percent low-sulfur diesel) at three of its stations in the San Francisco Bay Area. 

The company said it plans to add B20 blends to several stations in Berkeley and San Jose next.

“We’ve seen an elevated interest in higher-blend biodiesel offerings from Bay Area drivers in particular,” said Matt Horton, CEO of Propel. “By providing this new choice at the pump, we are enabling these drivers to make even greater progress towards reducing carbon emissions and our nation’s dependence on imported oil.”

Propel sells biodiesel that is sourced from used vegetable oils. Biodiesel is approved for use in current diesel vehicles. More and more auto manufacturers are producing vehicles that can run on B20 blends, including all 2011 GM and Ford diesel vehicles and Cummins engines.

Propel began selling B20 in the state of Washington in 2007. The company also offers other renewable fuel options at many of its stations, including E85.Biodiesel, biofuels, E85
