Expanding access to its locally produced biodiesel on Hawaii Island, Pacific Biodiesel has opened an off-grid fueling station in Pāhoa at 15-3070 Pahoa Kapoho Road, located southeast of the intersection of Hwy 130 and 132 (Enter from Hwy 132).

According to Retail Fueling Manager Christopher Long, the Pāhoa area has long been underserved. “While this community has a lot of customers with heavy equipment and farming equipment, there have been very limited options for off-road diesel in this area and previously no locations offering biodiesel,” noted Long. “With this new station, we now offer both on-road and off-road biodiesel and our prices are very competitive with petroleum diesel,” he continued. “We’re very excited to make our locally produced biodiesel available to the community in and around the Pāhoa area.”

Biodiesel is a 100% renewable fuel that can be used in any diesel engine, including diesel-powered cars, trucks, boats, heavy equipment, farm equipment and generators.

This is Pacific Biodiesel’s fourth off-grid biodiesel station to open in the state. Two are on Maui: at Maalaea Harbor and in Kahului; the other at Honokohau Harbor in Kailua-Kona on Hawaii Island. These innovative off-grid biodiesel stations offer 24/7 access to Pacific Biodiesel’s locally made, clean biodiesel.
