Cold Weather Guide

Handling & Use ::

Did you know that you can use up to a 20 percent blend of biodiesel year-round, in even the coldest of climates? Biodiesel will gel in cold weather, just like regular diesel fuel. But B20 can be treated for winter use, in similar ways that No. 2 diesel is treated. Using B20 throughout the winter months just takes a little preparation and good fuel management practices. A good fuel distributor will make sure your fuel is treated for optimum cold weather performance.
