Our Latest Step in the Green Direction: Bioheat® Fuel

January 23, 2014

At Diesel Direct, we value and support green initiatives and see the importance of providing renewable fuels such as biodiesel. Since we started our Being Green Program in 2009, we have been making great strides in environmental compliance with concrete actions. For example in 2010, we built the first electric diesel hybrid truck in the country. In line with our continuous efforts to go green and provide the safest and most ecological fuels possible, we are proud to announce that we are now distributing Bioheat® fuel: heating oil for commercial purposes.

Highest Quality Heating Oil

We are dedicated to providing the highest quality fuels available and are constantly expanding our suite of service and products to meet our clients’ needs. Apart from our standard offerings of clear and red Ultra Low Sulfur Diesel and Diesel Exhaust Fluid, we have more recently begun to offer heating oil. All of our heating oil meets ASTM D-396 specifications and ensure top quality performance by only supplying premium heating oil. We are excited to be able to go one step further to offering a truly green heating oil option with Bioheat® fuel.

Renewable Bioheat® Fuel: Heating Oil for Non-Residential Use

You may not yet be familiar with Bioheat® fuel, so here is a brief introduction. It is a new eco-friendly heating fuel that is a combination of standard heating oil blended together with biodiesel. Biodiesel is a renewable fuel that is produced domestically using natural products such as plant oils, animal fats, and even recycled cooking oil. At this point, the amount of biodiesel used in Bioheat® fuel is set a maximum of 5% blended together with 95% standard heating oil: this mixture is called B5. This is the current approved limit; however, there are plans to increase the amount of biodiesel that can be blended in the near future. *

Frigid Winter Temperatures Pose No Problems
