We make a diesel blend with up to 5 per cent biodiesel. It's suitable to use in vehicles that run on mineral diesel and can be readily mixed with what's already in your fuel tank.
Because our diesel blend contains no more than 5 per cent biodiesel it's classified as diesel not biodiesel. This means it can be used in vehicles that are designed to run on conventional mineral diesel.
Our diesel blend conforms with national fuel quality standards and is backed by our fuels guarantee that our fuels are fit for purpose and, if the conditions of our fuel guarantee are met, won't cause system problems.
Energy content is about 0.5 per cent lower than standard diesel. There may be a minor increase in fuel consumption, but this wouldn't be noticeable under normal operations.
Biodiesel is a renewable fuel that can be produced from vegetable oils or animal fats and used as a substitute for conventional diesel.
In Australia, biodiesel is most commonly made from domestically produced tallow. It can also be made from domestic or imported vegetable oils such as canola or soy.
The commercial fuels team can arrange bulk supply of winter diesel to customers if required.
