Other states considering similar measures include Montana, Oregon and Missouri. Montana could suspend the requirement if biodiesel costs 15 percent more than regular diesel or if the mixed fuel was found to cause engine problems. The Oregon bill starts out with a 2-percent requirement when state production reaches 5 million gallons per year, and then jumps to 5-percent at 15 million gallons. Missouri would require all pumps to sell B5 by 2009 but only if prices were competitive.
