We finally found a local gas station--at Northstar ski resort, of all places--that sells biodiesel, so we've changed the station's diesel vehicles over to this fuel.

Biodiesel is made from vegetable sources like soy beans or corn. It is usually mixed with petro-diesel to avoid conflicts with rubber engine parts used in some older vehicles, though it also makes a superior pure fuel with most newer vehicles.

Also, last year we began using cleaner burning 2-stroke oil for the snowmobiles, chainsaws & other station equipment.
