About the Coop
The Co-op has served over 200 members, and since January 2006, provided over 100,000 gallons of biodiesel to coop members. Our primary goal is providing a service to light-duty diesel vehicle owners in the greater Los Angeles area, who want to use the cleanest, greenest alternative fuel technology on the road today. We stress a“green” reduce-repair-reuse-recycle philosophy for VEHICLES MANUFACTURED BEFORE 2009 (see our FAQ page).
Founded in October 2005, incorporated in March 2006, the Co-op’s mission is to promote sustainable biodiesel through education, outreach, and advocacy while providing members with access to quality biodiesel fuel. B99 biodiesel is purchased in bulk through subscription by the members. The fuel is kept in portable storage facilities, i.e. “fuel jobber” trailers, currently based in Torrance and east side Los Angeles, near the LA Zoo. The Co-op has displayed at numerous environmental fairs and symposiums in Greater Los Angeles, Ventura and Orange Counties, advocated for biodiesel fleet fueling in Torrance, Gardena, Long Beach and other communities, which resulted in fueling their diesel equipment fleets with B20 (20%) biodiesel blend fuel, helped teach high school students in demonstration labs, and provided production and logistical support for the award-winning documentary “Fuel”.
The trailers can also be used as mobile education facilities to be taken to Earth Day events, local schools, farmers markets and similar venues. In this way we are able to educate the public and to demonstrate why the sustainably produced biodiesel fuel is needed.
We strive to provide our members with highest quality, sustainable B99 at the most affordable price. This includes all taxes and storage expenses.(See the most current price posted on the Welcome page.) We shop around for the highest quality, lowest-priced, locally-produced fuel available.
