All About Biodiesel

Using biodiesel in a conventional diesel engine substantially reduces emissions of unburned hydrocarbons, carbon monoxide, sulfates, polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons, nitrated polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons, and particulate matter.

Facts relating to biodiesel:
  • Can be used at 100% levels or mixed in any proportion with No. 2 diesel or No. 1 diesel.
  • Contains no nitrogen or aromatics.
  • Typically contains less than 15 ppm sulfur - Does not contribute to sulfur dioxide emissions.
  • Has characteristically low carbon monoxide, particulate, soot and hydrocarbon emissions.
  • Contains 11% oxygen by weight.
  • Has the highest energy content (BTUs) of any alternative fuel and is comparable to No. 1 diesel.

The bottom line is...

The facts speak for themselves.
