Green Car Congress: Seattles Essential Baking Company Shifts Delivery Fleet to B99 Biodiesel

Okay, so this is one small company and the deal involves only 13 diesel delivery trucks. What's the big deal? Well, it's like I noted yesterday, in getting biofuels (biodiesel is a biofuel) accepted, it will be easier to begin with commercial operators and build your market with them first. Yesterday it was the Port of Seattle, today it's a small bakery in Seattle, tomorrow it'll be another company and so on.

Eventually biodiesel will be a big thing among commercial companies.

Finding local sources for maintenance and fueling for the vehicles isn't as difficult as the average business small might think, say company officials. The Essential Baking Company currently uses Dr. Dan's (Freeman) Alternative Fuel Werks of Ballard for biodiesel fueling, and International Truck Leasing for trucks and service, among others.
