Biodiesel blends are available the entire length of the Interstate, from Gary, Ind., to Mobile, Ala.

According to published reports, this is the result of a $1.3 million federal project that involved Indiana, Kentucky, Tennessee and Alabama, the four states through which I-65 travels. In 2005, there were no E85 or B20 fueling stations along I-65. With the completion of this project, there are 31 refueling stations easily accessible from the Interstate, with more planned.
