Peterson Fuel can provide Marine Bio Diesel Blended to your exact Specifications; B5, B10, B20 and Custom Blends.
Biodiesel is a domestically produced, renewable fuel that can be manufactured from vegetable oils, animal fats, or recycled restaurant greases. All blending specifications are based on the volume content of the blended fuel.
Blends of 5% (B5) and 20% (B20) biodiesel, with the remainder being No. 1 or No. 2 diesel; B5 is therefore 5% by volume of neat (100%) biodiesel and 95% petroleum diesel. All other blends are calculated in the same manner.
All biodiesel must meet ASTM, international, or commercial standards. Most biodiesel in the U.S. is derived primarily from soybean oil, and is referred to as Soy Methyl Ester (SME). In Europe, the most common biodiesel is derived from rapeseed oil, and is referred to as Rapeseed Methyl Ester (RME). Peterson Fuel can blend Marine Bio Diesel to meet your operating Specifications.
