Environmental Benefits Of Vegetable Oil As A Fuel

We’re all aware that fossil fuels are causing environmental damage, yet we’re equally aware of the necessity of using vehicles. Electric and hybrid vehicles make great claims about being good for the planet, but in truth these are still heavily reliant on fossil fuels.Without a doubt, a vehicle running on vegetable oil is far more environmentally friendly than your average electric or hybrid vehicle. Vegetable oil is a environmentally friendly to produce and process.

 

  • It doesn’t require chemical tampering
  • As a fuel it reduces exhaust fumes and contains no sulphur dioxide.
  • It’s less corrosive to exhaust and catalytic converters
  • It produces no acid rain.
  • It’s endlessly renewable
  • It’s safe to handle
  • It’s biodegradable
  • It’s CO2 neutral
  • It’s a natural lubricant
  • It smells better than diesel
  • It can extend engine / vehicle life
  • It’s proven – our neighbours in Europe have been doing it for years now

 

Mechanical Benefits Of Vegetable Oil As A Fuel

Besides a huge saving in money, running on vegetable oil results in longer engine life. Standard diesel contains sulphur to aid lubrication, but vegetable oil is a natural lubricant.

Other benefits include:

  • Vegetable oil is less corrosive than standard diesel.
  • Our customers report performance is, at worst, the same and, in many cases, even better.
  • You can increase your overall mileage range with a twin tank system.
  • As a fuel it reduces exhaust fumes and contains no sulphur dioxide.
  • It’s safe to handle
  • Low flash point (reduces the risk of fire)
  • Mechanically little alteration to the standard engine needs to be made.

Diesel engines are the backbone of the transport industry. As you know when the oil price goes up, Transport costs rise and its us that pay for that rise in consumer goods. The oil certainly won’t get cheaper and eventually will run out. But we can keep growing vegetable oil producing crops that can widely benefit us all.
