Biodiesel

Biodiesel is a clean burning fuel from domestic and renewable sources blended into diesel which can be used in all traditional diesel applications. Biodiesel increases jobs, reduces dependence on foreign oil imports, and is one of the safer fuels to use, handle and store. It is a transparent fuel which doesn’t require additional infrastructure or equipment modifications, while being used as a drop-in fuel for immediate benefits. Biodiesel is America’s first commercially available advanced biofuel.

Biodiesel is not ethanol, which is blended in gasoline for gasoline powered vehicles. Biodiesel is used as a replacement or supplement to diesel fuel in diesel engines and power equipment.

Customized blends based on your specifications, as well as standard blended options are available.

Biodiesel blends provide natural, improved lubricity, increase cetane and significantly reduce greenhouse emissions.

In 2011, Empire Clean Cities estimated that Sprague’s biofuel sales resulted in a reduction of over 790 tons of greenhouse gases.

Sprague tests fuel to ensure the blend you require is the blend you receive.
