Can I use biodiesel in my Cummins?

Can I use biodiesel in my Cummins?

Cummins fully supports the use of environmentally beneficial alternative fuels. All of our automotive and industrial engines are compatible with B5 biodiesel to help encourage the greater use of renewable, domestically grown fuel.

Will biofuels replace fossil fuels in the future?

Replacing fossil fuels with biofuels—fuels produced from renewable organic material—has the potential to reduce some undesirable aspects of fossil fuel production and use, including conventional and greenhouse gas (GHG) pollutant emissions, exhaustible resource depletion, and dependence on unstable foreign suppliers.

Are biofuels better than fossil fuels?

The main benefit of biofuels over fossil fuels is that burning them puts less of the greenhouse gas, carbon dioxide, into the atmosphere. The carbon is constantly recycled and if the plants were not used as fuel they would be eaten by animals and the carbon dioxide would then be breathed out into the air.

What are the advantages and disadvantages of biodiesel?

At present, Biodiesel fuel is about one and a half times more expensive than petroleum diesel fuel. It requires energy to produce biodiesel fuel from soya crops, plus there is the energy of sowing, fertilizing and harvesting. Another biodiesel fuel disadvantage is that it can harm rubber houses in some engines.

Do biofuels produce CO2?

But just because biofuels are made from plants, it doesn’t mean they’re carbon neutral. Although direct emissions from biofuel are lower than fossil fuels – burning enough biofuel to generate one megajoule of energy gives off the equivalent of 39g of CO2, whereas for fossil fuels that figure is 75.1g.

How much land do biofuels need?

They determined that the approximately 4 percent of agricultural land and water used for producing biofuels would be sufficient to feed about 280 million more people if used for food crops.

Which gives more CO2 per gram of fuel?

Environment Canada publishes factors to estimate CO2 and other emissions from fuel combustion. Tailpipe CO2 emissions vary by fuel type because of their different densities. Denser hydrocarbon fuels, such as diesel, contain more carbon and will therefore produce more CO2 for a given volume of fuel.

Does Diesel produce carbon dioxide?

Because diesels are more efficient, they do in fact emit less carbon dioxide than gasoline engines. Unlike older diesel engines, the newer ones are equipped with diesel particle filters that trap most of that obnoxious particulate matter. However, the amount of nitrogen oxide emitted from diesels remains a problem.

Which country emits the most CO2?


Which country is highest emitter per year?
