Setting up your own personal fueling station from Dr. Dan’s is simple, and the setup easily fits in your garage or shed.
Totes are heavy-duty plastic with galvanized steel reinforcement and are movable with forklift or pallet jack. Dimensions are 48″x40″ and 46″ tall (without pump)
The kit includes electric pump (plugs into standard wall socket) with filter and meter. You also get plenty of hose and an automatic nozzle — just like you would see at a regular gas station.
The total cost for the kit is $1100 (plus WA state sales tax). Dr. Dan’s will deliver the set-up and the fuel, all you need to do is call or email and schedule a delivery. And when it’s empty, give us a call and we’ll come fill it again! (delivery charges apply)
This is a great way to make sustainable, low-carbon fuel readily available and convenient for your home, neighborhood, or business. Dr. Dan’s stands by the quality of our product, and is committed to selling the most sustainable biodiesel from the nearest reliable source currently available.
Dr. Dan how much would a refill for one of your home tank kits. I’m thinking of buying a diesel, and the idea of cheap fuel sounds attractive. Please let me know as it will aid in my decision. ~Sean
Unfortunately cheap fuel is not the reason that most folks do this. Biodiesel is more expensive that petrol diesel. The price of diesel and biodiesel has gone up a lot lately. We are currently at $4.25 a gallon. But it is great quality, as local as is possible, low carbon, low polluting biodiesel. Dan
Thanks for all the information here and on YouTube both. I have a 2001 Beetle TDI with a leaky fuel injector pump exactly like your video. I also now know what is causing it to leak. I have no interest in replacing the injector pump with the age of the car but a simple tank(or 2 or 3) of clean biodiesel might do the trick. I have watched all the videos of yours and read the entire website. I am now ready to “jump in”. The problem is I am in Atlanta, Ga and there is a lack of biodiesel with a greater concentration than B20 (and that isn’t enough). I would be willing to make or purchase my own fuel tank and buy more in bulk (I think I can do that) but for now I just need a source for biodiesel. Is there anything I need to do or haven’t thought of before I change over to biodiesel?
Yes there is plenty to do. You will need to find a quality biodiesel supplier and hopefully community to share info and resources with to be successful safe and wise. You will need a safe place to store biodiesel protecting it from the elements, contamination and spoilage. And then you may need to change fuel filters on your TDI when the biodiesel cleans out your fuel system like a laxative. Plugged fuel filters are the biggest cause of injection pump failure. And then all fuel must be filtered to avoid going though the clean out cycle again. All Fuel means all fuel anything that goes into your fuel tank must be filtered to at least 10 microns, preferably 5 microns or less. There is much more to know but those are the basics.
Hi! I’m more interested in a smaller 50-gallon drum with a manual pump that wouldn’t take up too much space in my garage at home. I’d probably need the drum refilled every 3 months. Is something like that possible? Thanks for any info!
since we currently charge a flat-rate delivery fee, it may not be economical to deliver such a small volume. It would be better to bring the drum to our station to fill up if that is possible for you
how much is your delivery fee for the fueling station? lets say the fueling station was a 4 hour drive one way from Seattle. Thanks!
