What You Need to Know About Biodiesel Fuels

If you are the kind of person who would go to all lengths in order to ensure the health and safety of our planet, you may want to think twice about purchasing that hybrid and instead select a vehicle that runs on biodiesel fuels. While hybrid vehicles like the Prius are all well and good, and do get a fantastic amount of mileage, they are far inferior to vehicles that run on biodiesel when you consider their impact on the environment.

Hybrids, you see, still require petroleum based products like gasoline and oil in order to run - so they still produce quite a few pollutants. And that is not even taking into account the toxicity of the battery and the large amounts of electromagnetic radiation produced by a hybrid, both of which are factors associated with its electric motors.

Cars and trucks that run on biodiesel oils and fuels on the other hand are almost totally clean burning because they use natural materials as a substitute for highly refined petroleum based substances. While a hybrid is busy getting sixty or seventy miles per gallon, an automobile using a biodiesel will produce as much as sixty percent less pollutants over practically the same distance. As you can see, biodiesel is a much cleaner burning fuel.

One of the truly amazing factors about biodiesel is that it can be made from practically anything. While most biological fuels in America are made from oil feedstock, companies have also successfully shown that they can produce biodiesel from waste vegetable oil, animal fats, treated sewage, and practically even from thin air. This means that biodiesel can potentially be extremely cheap over the long term because there are so many sources for production. Finally, any car, truck or boat with a diesel engine can run on biodiesel fuels automatically - there are no additional parts that you have to purchase for your vehicle, making it a cheap and effective solution for those who want to protect the environment.
