Ahhh, this brings up another good point. The station most likely buys/sells R99 because the refiner blends the 1% diesel so they can claim the blend credit & RIN. Same way almost all Bio refiners sell their product.
I’m Out of the wholesale fuel game now, but it all works the same.
You sure it’s the same? Assuming this is California, Marathon bought/transitioned an existing petroleum refinery to a renewable diesel refinery. The huge upside over bio diesel is that it carries the same or better cloud point/gel point as straight diesel. Where as bio gels up at much warmer...
Closing out the weekend. Great weather, no break downs (less a sea water pump rebuild), met up with some great people! @lake p.a.l. & the homie Kelly in “Mind if I smoke”. Can’t say enough about how cool the boating community is.
