Comparison between Traditional Gas Oil and Biodiesel

Biodiesel Production Benefits

Clean Burning
Renewable substitute for petroleum diesel
Using biodiesel as a vehicle fuel increases energy security
Improves public health and the environment
Provides safety benefits
Derived from renewable, domestic resources ◦78% reduction in net CO2 emissions (NBB, 2004)
Causes significant reduction in regulated engine emissions
Higher flash point than regular diesel – safer to transport

Engine Performance

Biodiesel has a higher cetane number, which means that biodiesel fuel will ignite more easily in a diesel engine while also reducing engine noise. Biodiesel’s higher cetane number resulting in a difference in overall fuel economy.
With over 16 million miles of testing by various groups and agencies, it has been demonstrated that biodiesel usage produces a similar level of torque, horsepower and fuel economy as that achieved by using conventional diesel fuels.

Cold Weather Performance

Conventional diesel can start to cloud or even gel in cold weather. Biodiesel fuels have similar cold weather limitations but have higher cloud and pour points.
However, these limitations are largely mitigated when using B20 biodiesel fuel.
During sustained below-freezing temperatures, cold weather performance can be managed via the use of cold flow additives or using a winter grade diesel in the biodiesel blend
