Biodiesel fuel is an alternative fuel that can be produced from natural crops like mustard, sunflower, hemp and waste vegetable oils. Biodiesel fuel can generate bio diesel power. Biodiesel power is used to power vehicle. Since bio diesel power is an alternative source of energy, it reduces the dependence on gasoline for running vehicles.
The use of biodiesel power for running vehicles does not cause any problems in the vehicle. The bio diesel used lubricates the inside of the engines and helps in reducing the wear and tear of engines. Biodiesel power is said to increase the life of engines. Bio diesel power is available at several gas stations at a price that is much lower than that of the conventional diesel. Therefore, more and more people are switching to using bio diesel power.
Biodiesel also keeps the air clean because when biodiesel power is used to power vehicles, it does not emit harmful particles into the atmosphere. This keeps the environment healthy.
The use of biodiesel in vehicles results in higher engine efficiency and power. A problem however, maybe encountered when starting biodiesel powered vehicles during winters. A solution to this problem is to add petroleum to bio diesel. Generally a mix of this kind has 20% petroleum and 80% bio diesel. The quantity of the petrol mixed varies according to how cold the weather is.
Using biodiesel power to run vehicles can be very expensive but the use of this alternative source of energy is also important because of the energy crisis that the world is facing.
