Louisville, Ky.- The National Biodiesel Foundation unveiled today the first-ever biodiesel fuel card. Officially called BioTrucker Fuel Card, it highlights the availability of biodiesel with a network of truck stops that carry biodiesel.
Truckers and fleets pay cash price on all fuel and no fuel transaction fee for biodiesel at in-network truck stops. In addition, Sapp Bros. Travel Centers (Peru Ill.), Waddy Unocal 76 (Waddy, Ky.) and Drivers Truck Stop (Ft. Worth, Texas) stepped up to the plate to be the first to offer a $.02 discount at the pump for BioTrucker Fuel Card holders.
"Being one of the first truck stops to offer a discount for BioTrucker Fuel Card holders is very exciting to us," said Kevin Cassidy, marketing Manager, Sapp Bros. Travel Centers. "We are huge supporters of biodiesel and this program will generate interest and awareness."
The initial in-network list of 149 truck stops will continue to grow as more truck stops sell biodiesel and accept the BioTrucker Fuel Card. In-network truck stops include large chains and independent stops. [Read full article]
