bio dieselHave you ever considered using biodiesel for your diesel engine?  Biodiesel has been an excellent fuel option for diesel-powered vehicles since the 1980s. Made from vegetable oils such as corn and soy, biodiesel is an economical and environmentally friendly fuel that is easier to use than you might think.

The greatest advantage to biodiesel fuel is its environmental benefits. It emits between 50% and 75% fewer pollutant particles and gases when compared to petroleum. Biodiesel is also biodegradable, non-toxic, and made from 100% renewable resources, unlike fossil fuels. Not only is it biodegradable, but when combined with petroleum, it helps petroleum biodegrade more quickly, as well. So if you’re concerned about the environment and want to do your part to reduce pollution, powering your vehicles with biodiesel is a great way to start.

But the advantages are not only environmental. Biodiesel can also be good for your vehicle, decreasing damage to catalytic converters because it contains no sulfur. Also, the lubricating properties of this fuel can lengthen the life of your engine. Making the switch to biodiesel does not require any special equipment, since it can be used in existing diesel engines and diesel fuel pumps with no alterations. In fact, biodiesel can even be mixed with other types of fuel, which can make for an easier and more affordable choice.
