Willie Nelson is celebrating after learning his environmentally friendly diesel is to be offered to motorists at a new Texas biodiesel station.

The country superstar's B-20 Blend, which is 20 per cent Biodiesel and 80 per cent diesel, will be on sale to the public at a new Carl's Corner fuelling station this summer (05).

To celebrate the opening of the new garage, Nelson plans to perform there on 3 July (05).

The fuelling station will offer conscientious truckers and farmers biodiesel gas made from soybeans or used cooking oil, which can be burned in diesel engines without modification.

The fuel also reduces pollutants such as carbon monoxide, carbon dioxide, sulphur dioxide and hydrocarbons.
