Biodiesel Blend Purchase Requirement

Diesel fuel that the New Hampshire Department of Transportation (DOT) purchases through the Motor Fuel Inventory Fund must contain at least 5% biodiesel (B5). Compliance with this requirement is at DOT's discretion only if the fuel is unavailable or more expensive than 100% petroleum diesel. DOT is encouraged to purchase diesel fuel containing up to 20% biodiesel (B20) when the fuel is acceptable for use. DOT may sell the fuel to all state departments and institutions, political subdivisions of the state, eligible non-profit corporations under contract with DOT to transport the general public, and federal government agencies.
