The production of diesel fuels involves the use of catalysts.  A new discovery shows how to make cleaner burning diesel fuel.

 

 

 

Researchers from KU Leuven and Utrecht University have discovered a new approach to the production of fuels. Their new method can be used to produce much cleaner diesel. It can quickly be scaled up for industrial use. In 5 to 10 years, we may see the first cars driven by this new clean diesel.

Good news. No matter how much we move to renewable, clean energy, diesel fuel is going to be needed to move freight for along time yet.

At one time Diesel was the waste product of refining gas and the cheapest. Now it cost more than super unleaded. And now some have to add extra oil to there fuel or some kind of additive?

Engines that were designed prior to the ultra low sulfur diesel change need additional lubricants added to reduce injector wear. Some people also claim that the Bosch CP4 fuel pump lasts longer with the same additive on newer diesels. This is similar to what was required on old engines designed for leaded gasoline verses unleaded.

The older diesels also ran well on B10 due to the extra lubricity without needing additives. I mixed B15 with #2 before but never ran B15 or B20 straight in my old engine. My new engine is certified for B20 use. Unlike gasohol, biodiesel does not suffer a mileage penalty but it does have a shorter shelf life than #2.

And it does a wonderful job of cleaning your gas tank and depositing everything it removed in your filters ;)

You don't get that build up if you use bio mix often. Typically this an issue with someone who had an old diesel fed on dino oil and suddenly had a change of diet using straight bio oil. It's well documented that you have to change filters often until your fuel system is clean and should be no surprise for someone going to that extreme. Running B10 or B20 typically does not have those issues unless you already started with a problem.

Can somebody hook up the folks at VW with this? LOL. We own one of the TDIs currently under fire because of the software cheater issue. Our 2014 Passat has the AdBlue system but I guess it still is a problem. I am NOT giving up my car without a fight because we do get great fuel mileage. I see these trucks that "roll coal" and know the emissions have to be much greater than my Passat. Maybe the change in diesel fuel will help offset this.

The interstate system of highways is fine for getting where you need to be in a hurry, but it's the road less traveled that is more enjoyable. Take in the scenery before life passes you by in a blur.

Nothing extra added. . .just changing the formula.  Consumer grade diesel fuel costs more because the federal government added a 50-cent tax on every gallon of diesel back when gas was cheaper than diesel and people began to think about buying diesel powered vehicles.

Hmm that's funny I thought the federal fuel tax on diesel was pegged at $.24 a gallon.

The federal tax on diesel is about $0.244 per gallon and then the states add their tax on it which in a lot of cases brings the total tax to around $.50 a gallon.
