Biodiesel Blends

Basic Terminology:
Biodiesel is the pure, or 100 percent, biodiesel fuel. It is referred to as B100 or “neat” biodiesel. A biodiesel blend is pure biodiesel blended with petrodiesel. Biodiesel blends are referred to as Bxx. The xx indicates the amount of biodiesel in the blend (i.e., a B20 blend is 20 percent by volume biodiesel and 80 percent by volume petrodiesel ).

Ensure the biodiesel meets the ASTM specification for pure biodiesel (ASTM D6751) before blending with petrodiesel.
The specification for biodiesel is designed to ensure that consumers will not experience operational problems from the fuel’s use. Make sure that biodiesel meets this specification and that the fuel supplier will warrant this fact. Quality fuel will provide the consumer with improved air quality and enhanced operability. Purchase fuel only from a reputable source, such as companies that are “certified marketers” or “accredited producers” under the BQ-9000 biodiesel quality program. See
www.bq-9000.org for more details about the program.
