WHDC LLC has launched a free service to enable cell phone users to easily find nearby biodiesel fueling locations.

NearBio (www.nearbio.com) enables mobile phone 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 web site's graphical map of nationwide locations uses a color-coded icon for each pump location to identify the specific blend available.

While on the road, cell phone users can spontaneously access the WAP site www.nearbio.com (or www.nearbio.mobi) and retrieve the five nearest fueling locations along with driving directions, phone numbers, and other details. For mobile devices that do not have Internet access, NearBio supports location retrieval via text messaging.
