Pacific Biodiesel’s Hobron fueling station now has the lowest diesel price in the state, according to a press release issued by the company today.

B20, which is a blend of 20% biodiesel and 80% petroleum diesel, dropped today to $3.79 per gallon.

Company officials attribute the drop to the falling price of petroleum worldwide.

Representatives with teh company say biodiesel is safe for all diesel engines and is registered with the US Environmental Protection Agency as both a fuel and a fuel additive.

Biodiesel is marketed as a cleaner-burning, renewable alternative fuel.  The Pacific Biodiesel brand is produced at Big Island Biodiesel from recycled waste vegetable oil.

“A 20% blend of biodiesel offers significant greenhouse gas emission reductions compared with straight fossil diesel,” company officials said in the announcement.

The biodiesel fueling station is located at 40 Hobron Avenue in Kahului.
