Biodiesel and other alternative fuels continue to gain popularity as petroleum fuel prices rise and we become more concerned about our environment. Introduction of these fuels raises many questions about actually using them in current equipment. The purpose of this factsheet is to address some of the common questions asked by those considering the use of biodiesel in existing diesel equipment.
A companion publication to this one (AEN-89) gives more detail about what biodiesel is, how it is made, and some of the advantages and disadvantages of the fuel.
