Biofuel is a clean burning alternative fuel produced from soybean, corn, canola, rapeseed, yellow grease and inedible tallow / greases. Biofuels contain no petroleum, but they can be blended at any level with petroleum diesel to create a biodiesel blend for a variety of applications. Biodiesel can be used in its pure form as B100 and it has been commonly used in on-highway diesel engines as B20 (20% biodiesel and 80% petroleum diesel). Additionally, a B2 - B5 blend has been successfully blended into #2 heating oil for home heating.
