Types of Diesel Fuel

Biodiesel
Biodiesel

Biodiesel is meant to be used in standard diesel engines and is thus distinct from the vegetable and waste oils used to fuel converted diesel engines. Biodiesel can be used alone, or blended with petrodiesel in any proportions.

Cetane Number
Cetane Number

The easier it is for diesel fuel to ignite, the higher we say its relative cetane rating is. Generally, the faster the fuel in a diesel ignites, the better the engine will run. However, the higher a fuel’s cetane rating is, the less energy dense that fuel tends to be.

DME
DME

DME is a simple, clean-burning fuel. With diesel-like performance, easy handling and rapid refueling properties, DME offers an excellent diesel alternative that is produced domestically from a variety of methane sources.
