Biodiesel

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.  

Sprague Commitment
Sprague has been marketing, handling and supplying premium biofuel products since 2005. As one of the leading biodiesel suppliers in the Northeast, Sprague markets biofuel to a variety of fleets including government, municipal, and school buses. In addition, Sprague is a leading supplier of Bioheat® fuel to the Northeast home heating market.

BQ 9000
Sprague is a BQ-9000 certified supplier and was the first oil terminal in the U.S to receive the BQ-9000 accreditation. BQ-9000 is a quality assurance program that accredits producers of Biodiesel. It assures that the quality is maintained at proper specifications and that the quality is assured throughout the distribution system. Currently we can offer custom BQ-9000 biodiesel and Bioheat® fuel at the following locations:

VALVTECT® Marine Diesel

Marine engines face very challenging market environments. Sprague is proud to offer the ValvTect® Marine Diesel brand to its customers. Today’s low and ultra-low sulfur diesel (ULSD) fuels offer poor lubricity, contain high levels of moisture, destabilize more rapidly than older diesel versions and are more susceptible to bacterial growth and filter plugging than higher sulfur diesel.  The decreased lubrication may also result in premature injector and fuel pump wear as well.

ValvTect® diesel is specifically designed to counteract these factors and improve your customers’ operating environment, in part thanks to the inclusion of its BioGuard® formulation.  ValvTect® premium diesel improves the engine lubricity and contains water dispersants, corrosion inhibitors and fuel stabilizers.

The ValvTect® with BioGuard® product does not require additional fuel additives to protect marine engines, eliminating any risk of improper additive use – saving time and money.

As compared with traditional commercial diesel, ValvTect® offers numerous advantages:

USLK

Sprague supplies Ultra Low Sulfur Kerosene (ULSK) to a wide array of dealers and commercial end users.

In addition to standard-grade ULSD, Sprague offers ULSK, dyed and undyed.  ULSK is a light distillate petroleum product, similar to Diesel.  However, since it is a much lighter fraction of crude oil, it has a lower boiling range, and significantly superior cold flow characteristics.  Therefore, it is generally used as a blend component for diesel fuels in the winter to improve cold flow characteristics.

In addition to quality fuels, Sprague offers a wide range of value-added services and products. Sprague’s proprietary online purchasing and account management systems and price protection options are well received by customers who appreciate the chance to take complete control of their buying decisions.
