B5 Biodiesel is a low-level biofuel blend consisting of up to 5 percent biodiesel and 95 percent petroleum diesel fuel. The blend is legally classified as a diesel fuel, which eliminates any operational or potential warranty concerns users may have. Indeed, B5 Biodiesel when properly handled will perform just like diesel, and the fuel has been approved for use by most diesel automobile and truck manufacturers. Compared to petroleum diesel, Biodiesel is safer, biodegradable, and produces less air pollutants than petroleum-based diesel.

Low-Level Biodiesel Blends in the U.S.

Low-level biodiesel blends, such as B5, are ASTM approved for safe operation in any compression-ignition engine designed to be operated on petroleum diesel. This can include light-duty and heavy-duty diesel cars and trucks, tractors, boats, and electrical generators. B5 blends and lower have been widely used in fueling stations throughout the country since the implementation of the Renewable Fuel Standard. (RFS)
