Hello Biodiesel Enthusiasts.

We are pleased to announce that the October Monthly Education Forum will focus on Fuel Quality and Performance Issues, and feature speakers from government, production, distribution and testing. More Information, including the speakers, is below.

Fuel Quality and Performance Issues

Tuesday, October 25, 2011, 7:00 pm to 9:00 pm

@ Phinney Community Center, 6532 Phinney Ave. N, Seattle, WA 98103

Fuel quality is a critical issue in any vehicle. How do we know that the fuel we buy for our vehicles is of high quality and will not cause problems, and also maximize performance? How is quality ensured in production and distribution? What does the state do to ensure quality? What is involved in testing biodiesel?

The NW Biodiesel Network’s October Education Forum is pleased to present a panel of representatives from government, production, distribution and testing to discuss fuel quality and performance, and answer your questions. Our panel will include:

Government – Jerry Buendel, WA Dept. of Agriculture
Producer – Shawn Noble, General Biodiesel Inc.
Distributor – Bett Lucas, Sound Refining
Fuel Tester – Jeff Fetkenhour, Gorge Analytical LLC

Join us to learn about fuel quality and performance issues and get your questions answered! 7:00 pm to 9:00 pm, Seattle Phinney Center, 6532 Phinney Ave. N, Seattle WA 98103. Cost is Free. Information, including speaker biographies, at www.nwbiodiesel.org/.
