10-04-06 – Beginning on Wednesday, local drivers can finally get bio-diesel in southern Oklahoma.
The EZ Mart in Calera is the first retailer to start selling the alternative fuel that is called Bio-Willie after pitchman Willie Nelson. It's supposed to be cleaner and more efficient than petroleum diesel, but the cost will approximately the same. That means only time will tell if it will be a hit with drivers.
Distributors expect more retailers to start selling a bio-diesel, especially when a new production facility in Durant is up and running.
