If you heat your home with heating oil, you might want to check out a new Web site, www.Bioheatonline.com, created by the National Biodiesel Board (NBB). Bioheatonline.com walks consumers through the basics of biodiesel and biodiesel-based heating fuel. It also helps you find dealers in your area who sell biodiesel-based heating fuel. Just type in your zip code for a list.
The site also provides technical information for heating oil dealers. “With over 100 registered Bioheat fuel dealers already, the heating oil market is going green,” reports the NBB.
If your home heating oil dealer isn’t offering biodiesel, you might want to ask why.
