Biodiesel Station in Ohio

Oberlin, Ohio to be exact. A little west of Cleveland. Full Circle Fuels is a quaint little station from the 1950’s that has converted itself into an alternative fuels spectacular. They currently or are about to stock all sorts of biodiesel and ethanol/diesel mixes for your converted supper SUV. Don’t have one of those, you say? No problem! Turns out the fellows at FCF will convert it for you in their garage! They also have some fairly eco and community friendly plans in the works, including:

  • Plans an auto repair self-help clinic for low-income residents
  • Is a pick-up and drop-off location for a local car-sharing program
  • Collects waste cooking oil from local establishments for use in converted vehicles and for biodiesel production
