Biodiesel Pump Questionnaire
The Cowichan Bio-Diesel Coop and the BC Biofuel Network are looking for collaborators in the sustainable biofuel community to develop the perfect fuel distribution/management system for small- to mid-scale biofuelers across North America. The goal is to create a cost effective, standardised, biofuel distribution model that can take advantage of cheap surplus fuel pumps by interfacing them to an inexpensive, universal, cloud-based Point of Sale (PoS) system and to keep it open source to continue to invite co-development by the sustainable biofuel community.

We know some of you are already working on this, or at least thinking about it, and we want your input! You can participate by filling out the questionnaire below to share your ideas and experiences. What services and other aspects of a PoS fueling system do you think are essential and/or has your organization already developed, and what components are still needed to create that perfect biofueling system? Answer N/A if you haven't dealt with certain questions. Visit for more information or email Jessy at with questions.
