In fact 1% of biodiesel added to normal diesel will increase lubricity by 65%. The main effect of this is that it acts like a solvent to clean engines.
  • Performance has been shown to rate comparable to petroleum diesel in all respects - from power to efficiency, hauling and climbing

Detergent effects

B100 acts as a detergent. It will loosen dirty carbon deposits stuck in your tank as a result of the use of fossil-diesel. It can, and probably will, eventually clog the engine's fuel filter. Be warned that this "clogging" can take place within hours, days or weeks. However, simply change your fuel filter and thereafter again at normal service intervals.

When to change your filter

Your vehicle will begin to experience power loss or your engine will shudder and start choking from lack of fuel. If your vehicle displays these symptoms, change the filter immediately
