Blending and Switching with Diesel Fuel Biodiesel can be used 100% (B100) or in blends with petroleum diesel fuel.
Biodiesel provides significantly reduced emissions of carbon monoxide, particulate matter, unburned hydrocarbons, and sulfates compared to petroleum diesel fuel.
Additionally, biodiesel reduces emissions of carcinogenic compounds by as much as 85% compared with petrodiesel.
Also, newer diesel vehicle models of Volkswagen, BMW and Mercedes (2007 or later) have a fuel system that utilizes a Diesel Particulate Filter (DPF) that can create a fuel/oil dilution in the diesel engine, whether diesel or biodiesel fuel is used.
Over time the engine oil could be diluted by the fuel if certain precautions are not taken.
A community-based biodiesel distribution program benefits local economies, from the farmers growing the feedstock to local businesses producing and distributing the fuel to the end consumer.
The money stays in the community while reducing impact on the local environment and increasing energy security.
When blended with petroleum diesel fuel, these emissions reductions are generally directly proportional to the amount of biodiesel in the blend.
Close Contact Benefits from the “French Fry Fuel” The reduced particulate and unburned hydrocarbons emissions that result when using biodiesel are a welcome relief in environments where workers and pedestrians are in close proximity to diesel engines, including public transport, mining, and construction.
