biodiesel for your equipment

4Refuel supplies biodiesel manufactured to ASTM 9001 fuel specification for use in standard diesel engines. This is distinct in processing and quality from the vegetable and waste oils used to fuel converted diesel engines. Biodiesel can be used alone or blended with petro-diesel. Check engine manufacturer's warranty for recommended percentage.

types of biodiesel

4Refuel sources biodiesel only from certified producers and delivers standard and custom blends, to tanks and direct to equipment.

Biodiesel is not recommended in very low temperatures because of its higher gelling point. Converting trucks to use biodiesel is simple but demands attention to fuel filters in the first few weeks since biodiesel scours and removes deposits in fuel tanks and engines.
