WHAT THEY ARE: Biodiesel pump labels are placed on your fuel dispenser (similar to the octane labels you see at the gas station). They state the presence and/or volume of biomass in the diesel gasoline as required by the Federal Trade Commission.

 

DIMENSIONS AND MATERIAL: The labels are 3”x2.5” and meet FTC regulations. They have a coating to protect them from the elements.

 

DIFFERENT TYPES OF LABELS: Essentially, you have two choices of labels for your dispensers: Those that state the CONTENT ONLY and those that state CONTENT AND SPECIFIC VOLUME. The choice is yours; you only need to have an approved label. For example, “BIODIESEL BLEND” would indicate a blend of 5%-20%. Alternately, “B-5” would indicate a blend of 5%. Either label would suffice. The question is: Do you want to show only content or content and volume?

 

PENALTIES: The Federal Trade Commission can sue violators of the Federal Rating Rule (biodiesel labels) in Federal Court. The court can impose civil penalties of up to $10,000 per violation!!!

 

PLACEMENT: The label or labels must be placed conspicuously on the dispenser face in full view of consumers and as near to the price per unit as is reasonably practical.

 

Biodiesel Pump Labels

 

*The FTC only requires labels for blends over 5%. Technically, B-5 is not necessary, however, it is strongly recommended that you label your dispenser.
