It is very simple to start using biodiesel. No modifications are required to a vehicle's engine. Since biodiesel cleans diesel engines from all deposits and sludge that have been accumulating over the years from using petroleum diesel, the fuel filter might need to be changed after a few fillings of biodiesel depending on how dirty the fuel tank is. The old fuel filter may get clogged by all these deposits from diesel fuel. Once the fuel filter is changed, the engine will run cleanly, smoothly, and efficiently.

You can fill your vehicle diesel tank with any blend ratio of diesel and biodiesel. If your tank already has diesel fuel in it, simply add biodiesel to fill the tank. The more the biodiesel content in the blend, the better lubrication and effeciency.

 

Biodiesel, better fuel for your vehicle!

Step 1: Preparing Your Vehicle
If you drive a 1993 or older diesel vehicle, it is recommended to replace the hoses and gaskets from the original rubber to Viton or Teflon. Biodiesel is a natural cleaning agent and will slowly degrade any natural rubber hoses or gaskets.

Step 2: Make the Switch
To make a smooth transition from diesel to biodiesel, we suggest gradually increasing your biodiesel ratios over time. Because biodiesel acts as a natural cleaning agent, it will break down the sludge and sediment in your fuel tank and lines left behind by petro-diesel. The higher the miles on your vehicle, the more likely you will have heavy sludge build-up. By gradually increasing biodiesel ratios, the sludge will slowly be cleared away.

The following procedure is suggested for a smooth transition:
Start with a mixture of up to 50/50 ratio of biodiesel and diesel fuel for two consecutive tank fillings. Then start filling the vehicle tank with 100% biodiesel.

An immediate switch from diesel fuel to biodiesel could quickly cause a clogged fuel filter. That is why it is suggested to start gradually so as not to clog the fuel filter too fast. Once the fuel filter is changed and you start using 100% biodiesel, you do not need to change the fuel filter too often. Even if 100% biodiesel is used, you can still add diesel fuel if biodiesel is not available at the time.

Your vehicle is now running with a smoother engine, more efficient, and environment friendly clean-burning fuel.

In winter time at freezing temperatures, you should mix a 50/50 blend of biodiesel and diesel fuel to prevent biodiesel from gelling.
