    Interesting. And thanks for a good explanation, howie12. Renewable is different than biodiesel. For what it's worth, I contacted Propel to inquire about maintenance interval. Bottom line, their fuel is not biodiesel, and is manufactured to the ASTM D-975 spec of #2, and the regular maintenance schedule is followed.
    I'm very interested in this 76 fuel if it's the same. I love filling with Propel but I do wish it took off and had more availability.

    Big question: How much was it per gallon?? I emailed Unocal 76 to ask for info and where avail. since their website has no mention of it.
    This is big news for us Ecodiesel owners in CAL as 76 will have a bigger dist. network than Propel and since the EGR and soot are our problem, especially after the upcoming settlement-ECM flash, renewable diesel burns so much cleaner that is our answer to us not being able to have a GDE tune.

    Real "renewable" diesel would be something caught out the exhaust, re-processed and run through again and again.

    It could be a real perpetual motion fuel. Getting used to anything else would just have to "grow on you".

    Haha, I wouldn't have paid that, the $8.99 was cost for a pack of American Spirits cigs.
    I believe the diesel was $3.50ish/gal

    It seems to me there will be a limited supply of this fuel since the feedstock is waste vegetable oils and fat and waste animal fat. There is only so much of that available to collect and it is unlikely to be practical to collect it countrywide. High concentrations of restaurants or meat processingare likely to be good locations.

    I ran a 96' cummins on wvo for almost 5yrs., got greedy or cheap and tried to use to much and not filtered good enough and wore the rings out, surprisingly never had to replace an injector. The engine oil sure did stink when changed. Ran 920miles on $20 of diesel fuel once. Would get wvo hot and strain through t shirt and put in truck, it did smell great!

    For renewable fuel, there were restrictions on land from which the feedstock could be grown. Biomass grown on federal lands, tree crops or byproducts, and land only cultivated after 2007 were excluded under the standard.
