The benefits of switching to alternative fuel.

We understand you demand proven performance and will not sacrifice quality for sustainability. With biodiesel, that's not a concern. Not only does it meet stringent ASTM specifications, it also delivers impressive operational benefits.

  • Improved lubricity
    • Biodiesel can add lubricity to diesel fuels at blend levels as low as 1% .3
  • High combustion quality
    • Biodiesel raises the cetane number of the fuel, speeding up combustion.
