Our November Customer of the Month is not a patient man. Admitting to an “A type” personality, Matthias Kusch admits it made him crazy to find out there was an 18 month wait list for Pacific Biodiesel fuel totes on the Big Island back in 2006. When he saw one listed in a “moving sale”, he jumped at the opportunity to take over the contract and has been a steady customer ever since.

A Big Island fire fighter by profession, Matthias also farms coffee and avocado. He uses our B100 in his tractor, F-250 pick-up and his wife’s Jetta wagon.

“I put a lot of miles on my vehicles and pull a lot of weight. Biodiesel is an economically viable alternative that is both good for the environment and the engines”, said Kusch who’s had years of trouble free maintenance.

Matthias Kusch is one of a number of Hawaii Island investors looking forward to the opening of the Big Island Biodiesel refinery in 2011.

“Pacific Biodiesel has come up with the perfect solution for what was an ugly problem on the Big Island”, states Kusch. “A sustainable, locally sourced refinery that reduces waste in the landfills and benefits the community is a wonderful thing.”
