Biodiesel Basics #39: Biodiesel Performs As Well As Regular Diesel

Categories: General Info

Biodiesel, an environmentally friendly alternative fuel produced right here in Wisconsin, performs just as well as regular diesel.  Here are some facts:

  • Most existing engines can run on blends up to 20 percent with no impact on operating performance.
  • B20, a blend of 20 percent biodiesel and 80 percent diesel, has fuel consumption, horsepower, torque and haulage rates similar to conventional diesel.
  • A recent Purdue University study showed that big-truck engines perform as well when running on B20 biodiesel as with No.2 ultra-low-sulfur diesel.
