    Does anyone know where to purchase small quanites off-road diesel near Detroit?

    Not sure how far away you are but in Fowlerville there is a mobil gas station approx. 5 minutes off of I-96. They have off-road diesel fuel that usually runs anywhere from 20-30 cents cheaper per gallon as well as well as B-20 and B-99 biodiesel. Hope this helps.

    Thanks but that is a little bit too far of a hike for the quanity I need.

    What kind of quantity are you talking? If you are talking a couple 5 gallon cans worth I don't understand why you just would not pay the extra 40 cents a gallon, or whatever it is, and buy on road #2. JMHO

    FWIW - Most Co-Ops have off road diesel available?

    Called a few places and said I needed to order 200 gallon minimum which is way to much for me, so I was just wondering if anyone has a source for smaller quanites.
