Hello BESTers,

Several counties in northwest Oregon have initiated a requirement that all
diesel fuel be mixed with a 2% biodiesel blend. On October 1, the entire
state of Oregon will follow with a 2% biodiesel blend. These initiatives
were part of a statewide renewable energy legislation that was passed in
2007 for Oregon. Hopefully this new policy will show the rest of the U.S.
that a B2 blend for commercial diesel is possible on a large scale.
