July 19th Come See Biodiesel and Minnesota’s move to B20.

The truck is an F550 that was custom built by the Diesel Sellerz, stars of the hit Discovery show, The Diesel Brothers. Known for their big truck builds, this unique partnership, puts Minnesota’s soybean farmers on a national platform for telling the story of biodiesel and how that helps farmers, the economy and our environment. This investment by the Minnesota Soybean Research and Promotion Council is all about promoting biodiesel and the future of this renewable fuel in Minnesota.
