Bently Biofuels closes retail store, still serves gas

The Bently Biofuels Outpost retail store on Buckeye Road in Minden was closed Nov. 1 in order to prepare for the new direction Bently Biofuels Co. will be taking in 2013.

According to a company press release, Bently Biofuels will be focusing on wholesale biodiesel sales to retail outlets in Northern Nevada and California.

The Outpost in Minden will continue to sell fuel 24/7, and clients will be able to use credit or debit cards to pay at the pump.

The following fuel types will continue to be available for purchase: E10, regular gas; E85 for flex-fuel vehicles; B5 biodiesel blend (5 percent biodiesel, 95 percent petroleum diesel), approved for all diesel engines; B20 (20 percent biodiesel, 80 percent petroleum diesel); B50 in the winter months; and B99 in the summer months.

Off-road red dye B20 and B50 will continue to be available.

In addition, Bently Biofuels is offering delivery of home heating oil. Red dye B20 is a safe, clean-burning, and cost-effective way to heat homes, the company stated.

Bently Biofuels Co. has been producing biodiesel from seed and recycled cooking oil since 2005.
