With the inexorable rise in oil prices, biodiesel is becoming an increasingly attractive alternative fuel source from a cost perspective.
When reviewing the high costs associated with other alternative fuel systems, many fleet managers have determined biodiesel is their lowest cost strategy – especially as they increasingly have to comply with state and federal regulations on carbon emission.
Use of biodiesel does not require major engine modifications. That means operators keep their fleets, their spare parts inventories, their refueling stations and their skilled mechanics. The only thing that changes is air quality.
