The Indian Nation controls 13 Choctaw Travel Plazas along the heavily traveled I-75 and Highway 69 highway corridor in Oklahoma. Initially, Wilie Nelson’s fuel will be offered in two plazas; with future plans to expand beyond that. From the press release,

“The Choctaw Nation is pleased to be leading the way for alternative fuels in Oklahoma. Since we serve thousands of trucks each day at our Choctaw Travel Plazas, offering BioWillie® brand biodiesel not only gives us a competitive advantage, but allows us to provide more choices of fuel to American truck drivers,” said Chief Gregory E. Pyle, Choctaw Nation of Oklahoma.”

It’s great to see Willie’s business expanding. His biodiesel pumps are currently located in seven states, including California, Georgia, Louisiana, Mississippi, Oklahoma, Tennessee and Texas. The fuel is a premium blend of biodiesel and petroleum diesel. The biodiesel is made from vegetable seeds, such as soybeans. You can find out more regarding his product at the BioWillie website.
