Vehicles that use diesel as fuel can also use biodiesel if it is professional grade. Vehicle engines must be modified in order to use non-professional quality biodiesel fuel. Cars manufactured specifically to burn biodiesel as their primary fuel source are not really necessary. Some hybrid cars use biodiesel as a fuel in addition to electric power.
Most biodiesel fuel sold around the world from petroleum distributers are a blend of diesel and biodiesel fuel. The most common blend is B20. B20 is a blend of 2 parts biodiesel to 8 parts diesel. Even this 20% reduction in the use of petroleum based diesel fuel can drastically reduce emissions.
Biodiesel in its purest form emits almost no harmful toxins into the environment. Biodiesel is safe enough to drink, although no one would want to. It biodegrades very quickly – it is gone almost after a single rain. Every product used to manufacture biodiesel fuel is a completely renewable resource.
The common raw materials used in the production of biodiesel are soybeans, canola, vegetable oils and vegetable fats and animal fats. Many biodiesel refineries use waste products from the food industry to manufacture biodiesel, another way we can recycle. With the biodiesel blends, cars can maintain the horsepower necessary to make them functional for everyday use while conserving non-renewable resources and protecting the environment. The blends also provide better fuel mileage than biodiesel only.
