​​​​​​​Diesel Dispenser Labels​​

A very brief guide to compliance with diesel dispenser labeling requirements for diesel fuels containing up to 20% biodiesel.

  • OAR 603-027-0430
  • 16 CFR Part 306

Diesel fuel dispensers must be labeled with:

  • Fuel type
  • Fuel grade
  • Unit price​
  • Renewable Fuels

Fuel Ty​pe

​Fuel type is "Diesel" for all diesel fuels.

Fuel Grade​​

Fuel grade is one of:

  • Number 1
  • Number 2
  • B5-B20
  • B20
Abbreviations are permitted, i.e. No. 2 or #2 in lieu of "Number 2".​

Unit Price

Unit price is required for dispensers used to sell diesel fuel to the public.  Card Lock dispensers are not required to show unit price unless the site allows non-members to purchase diesel fuel.  Unit price may be posted in close proximity to the fuel dispenser as long as there is no ambiguity as to what the retail customer will pay for the fuel sold.

Renewable Fuels Labeling​

Biodie​​sel Blends

  • ​ B5 to B20 biodiesel blends​

B20 biodiesel blends


Renewable Die​​​sel Blends​


Blends containing both renewable ​diesel and biodiesel​​

Compliance can be acheived by labeling the dispenser with both the blue biodiesel and the orange renewable diesel labels or by using a single two component blend label describing the composition of the overal blend.  For example:
