Just What Exactly Is Bio Diesel?

Lots of people are unaware that Bio diesel even exists. This article is intended to shed a little light on Bio diesel and what a wonderful, non toxic, renewable fuel it is.

Natural materials are used to make Bio diesel fuel instead of the fossil fuels used to make conventional diesel. Bio diesel fuel is most often made from plant oils, then used in a normal diesel vehicle or machinery. Bio diesel fuel can be used on its own, or mixed with conventional diesel.

Here are some common facts about Biodiesel fuel:

* Bio diesel fuel produces no carbon dioxide
* Biodiesel fuel produces no carbon monoxide emissions
* Biodiesel fuel produces no benzene
* Bio diesel fuel produces no sulfur dioxide
* Bio diesel fuel produces no hydrocarbons
* Bio diesel fuel eliminates visible smoke
* Bio diesel fuel cleans and lubricates your engine
* Bio diesel fuel exhaust smells like popcorn.

Just what are the benefits of using biodiesel fuel?

1) Making your own biodiesel fuel reduces our dependence on fossil fuels.

2) Biodiesel fuel is cheap to make and the money stays in the country.

3) Biodiesel fuel is both renewable and non-toxic. It is even possible to drink biodiesel, though not recommended, as it tastes terrible!

4) Bio diesel fuel is basically carbon-neutral. Bio diesel fuel reduces the usual noxious emissions such as carbon dioxide and carbon monoxide that we’re used to from conventional vehicles.

5) Biodiesel fuel will also reduces engine wear by lubricating it. You can also blend biodiesel with ordinary diesel, even as little 2% bio diesel will make a difference. Bio diesel also flushes your fuel injectors and lines.

6) By running a vehicle on bio diesel fuel you will produce a smoother and quieter ride, and your car will have cleaner exhaust fumes.

So what are some of the down sides of using Biodiesel fuel?

1) If you want to run your vehicle on bio diesel fuel you will most likely have to make it yourself.

2) The fact that bio diesel fuel will clean your fuel injectors and lines, means that you should expect your first few tanks to flush out some dirt and grime. You may also have to replace your fuel lines if your car is older than fifteen years.

3) Biodiesel fuel might not produce toxic emissions, but it does produce NOx which may contribute to smog. by: Yasmin Wilde
