Ashland's first biofuel station is open, offering diesel motorists a self-service fill-up at $3.25 a gallon and manufacturing the "green" fuel with local recycled grease and fat and locally grown canola seed oils.

The Rogue Biofuels station — really just a 3,000-gallon tank and a pump — is at 1409 N. Pacific Highway, in front of Paradise Supply. Oregon law permits self-service of diesel and biofuel.

The station offers 24-hour service with credit and debit cards. Patrons can pay with cards, cash or checks during business hours.

The station also has a drop-off tank for household fat and grease and collects both from 200 restaurants in the Rogue and Klamath basins and on the coast, says Biofuels President Chris Benware.
