Increase the biofuel content of diesel to 25% during the summer months

Comment 9th May 2015

Currently diesel contains 5% biodiesel. The limiting factor is the viscosity of biodiesel at low temperatures.

At 25 deg C 25% biodiesel/diesel would have the same viscosity as as 5% biodiesel/diesel at -10 deg C.

Therefore the proportion of biodiesel could be 5% in Winter, 15% spring/autumn and 25% during the summer.

It is normal for ordinary diesel to be sold without winter additive during the summer months so it should be no problem to change the biodiesel/diesel blend.

Why does this matter?

  • To reduce greenhouse emissions.
  • To reduce pollution.
  • To reduce our reliance on imported carbon fuels.
