Since the turn of the century, biodiesel consumption in the United States has grown from virtually nothing to more than 2 billion gallons per year. In fact, between 2010 and 2016 alone, yearly consumption numbers grew by more than 600 million – a sure sign that the desire for alternative energy sources is alive and well. Seeking to join in on the industry’s rapid growth? Adding biodiesel to your gas station might be the perfect move. Here, SeQuential has compiled a checklist to help you make the change seamlessly.
- Start by choosing your biodiesel provider. Look for a company with a history of ethical practices, a dedication to premier customer service and plenty of industry experience. If you’re located in the Pacific Northwest, choose SeQuential – we currently serve biodiesel stations throughout Oregon and Washington, and we’re always looking to add another station to our ever-growing list.
- Work with your provider to get the right equipment. The best biodiesel providers go above and beyond merely providing your station with fuel. They’ll also ensure that their partner biodiesel stations are outfitted with equipment that benefits both parties. Here at SeQuential, we’ll even work with you to develop a pump branding package that effortlessly complements your biofuel station.
- Get the training you and your employees need. Handling biodiesel isn’t the same as dealing with petroleum-based fuels. It requires special care and unique equipment. Fortunately, reputable biodiesel producers, including SeQuential, will deliver in-depth, onsite training to help ensure that your gas station is staffed by experts who know the ins and outs of your biodiesel gear.
- Spread the word. Once you’ve outfitted your gas station with biodiesel pumps, it’s important to let the world know that you’ve joined the fight for a brighter future educating your customers on the benefits of biodiesel as a petroleum alternative. SeQuential can provide you with helpful informational materials that illustrate the benefits of our clean-burning biodiesel to help keep your customers coming back for more.
