Biodiesel is a clean burning alternative fuel, produced from
domestic, renewable resources such as plant oils, animal fats, used
cooking oil and even new sources such as algae. Biodiesel contains
no petroleum, but it can be blended at any level with petroleum
diesel to create a biodiesel blend. Biodiesel blends can be used
in most compression-ignition (diesel) engines with little or no
modifications. Biodiesel is simple to use, biodegradable, nontoxic,
and essentially free of sulfur and aromatics.
