Biodiesel and Your Wallet

February 20th, 2019

We all want to help save the environment by going green, but we’re also worried about how much that’s going to cost — especially when it comes to heating our homes. This article explains how switching to home heating oil that contains certified biodiesel produced by American GreenFuels is good for the planet and does not adversely impact your wallet.

Calculating the Cost of Biodiesel

First of all, the price of biodiesel is competitive with that of ultra low sulfur diesel.

In general, there are many factors that contribute to the competitive cost of biodiesel that span across the stages of production, transportation and consumption. In particular, when you switch to home heating oil made with certified biodiesel produced by American GreenFuels, you don’t have to buy new heating oil equipment or modify your current equipment. In fact, the National Biodiesel board explains:

[O]ne of the biggest benefits to using biodiesel is that it is easy to use. Blends of B20 [blends containing 20% biodiesel] or lower require no new equipment or equipment modifications. B20 can be stored in diesel fuel tanks and pumped with the same equipment as diesel fuel. B20 does present a few unique handling and use precautions, but most users can expect a trouble-free B20 experience. 

To learn more, please contact a Bioheat® heating oil retailer that currently offers certified biodiesel produced by American GreenFuels.

Don’t Be Fuelish

If you could heat your home with a renewable, cleaner-burning alternative to diesel that has a price tag similar to the traditional ultra low sulfur heating oil that you already use, why wouldn’t you? Do the green thing: Choose a home heating oil that contains certified biodiesel produced by American GreenFuels.
