There is a site in Sumner, WA (Shell) that has 5 grades of fuel, Regular, Plus, Super, Diesel #2 and Bio-Diesel. That last grade, Bio-Diesel is not listed for this site. How do I request that there is this fuel? Is it even necessary?

How common is this? Is it the majority of stations or just a few?

Maverik stations also have 5 grades of fuel (87,89,90,91 and Diesel) - this would be a good addition for them as well.

while others have asked about price posting for a variety of fuels such as bio-diesel, DNG, off-road and racing fuels, etc., moderators have said on several occasions that there are no current plans to increase the gas price posting options, as regular, mid-grade, premium, and diesel are the products most used by the overwhelming majority of Gas Buddy members.

If you want to note that a station has bio-diesel, you can enter that information on the Master Station List in the Station Notes section for the specific gas station, or you can start a topic in the local Washington discussion category to note an individual station, or information about bio-diesel in general. If you plan on starting a new topic regarding bio-diesel prices for a specific area, the more clearly identifiable your topic is, the better you make the information accessible to other Gas Buddy members. For example, a topic titled "Current bio-diesel prices for Summer Washington gas stations" would be better than "Fuel prices" or "Bio-diesel". Just a suggestion, though.
