Biodiesel has higher cetane than U.S. diesel fuel, which means the fuel ignites faster and causes the engine to run better. B20 (20 percent blend of biodiesel with diesel fuel) provides similar fuel economy, horsepower, torque and haulage rates as diesel fuel. Biodiesel also has superior lubricity and it has the highest energy content of any alternative fuel.
