BLOOMINGTON, ILL. - June 15, 2017 - In recognition of its work in reducing motor vehicle emissions and supporting the Illinois economy, the B20 Club welcomes Al Warren Oil Co., Inc. as its newest member. 


Sponsored by the Illinois Soybean Association (ISA) checkoff program, in partnership with the American Lung Association in Illinois, the B20 Club recognizes Illinois-based fleets and municipalities using biodiesel blends of 20 percent or more for at least six months of the year.  Al Warren Oil uses 100,000 gallons of B20 in 39 fleet vehicles each year, which it is estimated reduces CO2 emissions by the same amount as planting 4,130 trees.


“By using B20 biodiesel, Al Warren Oil is demonstrating its commitment to the future and to sustainability,” says Rebecca Richardson, Illinois Soybean Association biodiesel lead. “We are glad to recognize their dedication to efficient, reliable and cost-effective fuel.”


Al Warren Oil was founded in 1948 with one truck, one vision, and a commitment to excellence and personal relationships. Today, Al Warren Oil Company is still a family-owned organization with an unwavering commitment to building long-term relationships and providing the latest alternative fuels, performance enhancements and technologies. The company’s operations include on-site fueling and fleet maintenance supply and delivery.


In its third-generation of family ownership, Al Warren Oil has its corporate office in Hammond, Ind., with locations in Chicago and Indianapolis.


“Our biofuel division continues to show more potential for the future,” says Vice President of Operations Tom Warren Jr. “We are an approved biodiesel blender, and we sell about a million gallons of blended diesel every month. With a soy-based biodiesel being a solid choice by our customers, our company is proud to provide a green solution.”


The B20 Club was launched in 2015 to provide cleaner air while supporting Illinois agriculture and the state economy. Since its inception, 15 members have been added that together using 5.6 million gallons of B20 biodiesel annually. For more information, visit
