Biodiesel refers to a vegetable oil- or animal fat-based diesel fuel consisting of long-chain alkyl (methyl, propyl or ethyl) esters. Biodiesel is typically made by chemically reacting lipids (e.g., vegetable oil, animal fat (tallow)) with an alcohol.
Biodiesel is meant to be used in standard diesel engines and is thus distinct from the vegetable and waste oils used to fuel converted diesel engines. Biodiesel can be used alone, or blended with petrodiesel.
The term "biodiesel" is standardized as mono-alkyl ester in the United States.
Currently our engine manufacturer Cummins is in the process of building an engine that will meet Bio Diesel Engine requirements, so stay tuned to this page for the latest info on Bio Diesel Powered Trucks.
