Biodiesel

Biodiesel Blends for Businesses in Fairfield County, CT, and Westchester County, NY.

Biodiesel is the first and only EPA-designated advanced biofuel in commercial-scale production across the country. Biodiesel blends produce far fewer carbon emissions than traditional diesel fuel. It is a true local green alternative.

Westmore Fuel blends and rack injects biodiesel at our own marine storage terminal. From there, we can deliver the biodiesel to your on-site storage tank. If you don’t currently have a fuel storage tank on your site, we can help you there, too.

Westmore Fuel has partnered with Western Global to make it easy for your business to save money and time with our fleet fueling services. Western Global provides different types of fuel storage tanks, along with parts and accessories that are designed to keep your job site running smoothly, including its FuelCube models.

How Is Biodiesel Made?

Westmore Fuel’s biodiesel is a 100% U.S.-made product produced from the husks of soybeans. At Westmore Fuel, we provide the following premium soybean-derived fuel blended with high-performance diesel additives:

  • B5 biodiesel blend (5% biodiesel and 95% ultra-low-sulfur diesel)
  • B10 biodiesel blend (10% biodiesel and 90% ultra-low-sulfur diesel)
  • B20 biodiesel blend (20% biodiesel and 80% ultra-low-sulfur diesel)

Can My Vehicles Use Biodiesel?

Every diesel engine can use biodiesel blends. No engine modification is needed.

The most common biodiesel blend is B5 (5% biodiesel). This B5 blend represents a good balance of cost, emissions, cold-weather performance, materials compatibility, and the ability to act as a solvent.

Why Biodiesel Is Better for Engines

Biodiesel raises the cetane number of fuel and improves fuel lubricity. A higher cetane number means the engine is easier to start, and that reduces ignition delay.

Diesel engines depend on the lubricity of the fuel to prevent moving parts from wearing out prematurely. Improved lubricity reduces friction within the moving parts, avoiding additional wear. A primary advantage of biodiesel is that it can improve the lubricity of the fuel at blend levels as low as 1%.

We believe in biodiesel so much that Westmore Fuel has been powering our own fleet with it since 2008.

On-Road Diesel Vs. Off-Road Diesel

There is no chemical difference between on-road and off-road diesel fuels. The only differences are in the color, cost, and intended use. Off-road diesel is dyed red to distinguish it from clear on-road diesel.

Unlike on-road diesel, no tax is levied on off-road diesel. Therefore, it is illegal to use off-road diesel fuel in any motor vehicle that travels along public roadways. Because it is not subject to tax, off-road diesel costs less per gallon than on-road diesel. This results in significant savings for industries that rely on it heavily, such as the construction and agriculture sectors.
