Biodiesel Fueling Location Information for Cell Phones and Mobile Devices

GreenCarCongress reports on how maps are being developed for mobile phone users to find biodiesel fueling spots... although only in the US at present:

'NearBio, operated and invented by WHDC LLC, a privately held company specializing in distributed mobile applications, has introduced a service that enables mobile phone users (and computer users) to find the nearest biodiesel fueling locations based on city, zip code, or GPS coordinates.

The national database of more than 1,000 individually verified locations is updated daily and is complete with driving directions, hours, payment options, and blend information (where available). The website’s graphical map of nationwide locations is the first of its kind, using a color-coded icon for each pump location to identify the specific blend available.'
