Biodiesel is a safe alternative fuel to replace traditional petroleum diesel. We produce our biodiesel from used canola, sunflower and palm oil.
One of the great advantages of biodiesel is that it can be used in existing diesel engines and generators no modifications. This means that no retrofits are necessary when using biodiesel fuel. It is the only alternative fuel that offers such convenience.
Biodiesel acts like petroleum diesel, but produces less air pollution, comes from renewable sources, is biodegradable and is safer for the environment.
It can be used 100% (B100) or in blends with petroleum diesel fuel. Blends are indicated by B##, which correspond to the percentage of biodiesel in the blended fuel. For example, a 50% blend of biodiesel with 50% diesel fuel is called B50. When biodiesel is first used in a vehicle, it may release fuel tank deposits which can lead to fuel filter plugging. After this initial period, a user can switch between biodiesel and petroleum diesel whenever needed or desired, without modification.
All diesel engines and vehicles can use biodiesel or biodiesel blends. Certain older vehicles built before 1993 may require replacement of fuel lines which contain natural rubber, as biodiesel can cause these lines to swell or crack.
