Biodiesel Stations in Olmstead County area:
Biodiesel is less polluting and has a smaller carbon footprint than regular diesel, and is produced right here in the USA. Places like Minnesota with strong agriculture are particularly suited for biodiesel...and sure enough Olmsted county has quite a few biodiesel stations. Biodiesel can be used in almost any diesel engine. Up to B20 (a 20 percent blend) any diesel engine, whether car or 18 wheeler or whatever, can use it. Above B20 some older engines may have problems, but newer engines should be ok. Here are some local biodiesel stations:
