Biodiesel blends provide outstanding benefits for users through better lubricity, reduced emissions in urban areas, and a contribution to a shift in reduced usage of petroleum-based fuels.
One of the downsides for these fuels is an increased tendency to gel and thicken at temperatures much higher than normal diesel fuel.
With minimal treatment, conventional diesel fuel remains useable at temperatures approaching 0 degrees F, which is reasonable for many parts of the United States. Straight FAME and biodiesel blends from B2 up to through B100 may start gelling at much higher temperatures - some even approaching 50 degrees F.
Bell Performance's Bio Dee-Zol Plus biodiesel fuel treatment solves cold weather handling issues for most types of biodiesel. With multiple cold flow improvers, Bio Dee-Zol Plus keeps both the biodiesel FAME and regular diesel base portion of the blends useable and flowing at these lower temperatures.
Use of Bio Dee-Zol Plus reduces cold filter plugging point and lowers pour point (the temperature at which the fuel remains pourable), while also eliminating water and moisture in the biodiesel fuel - a primary cause of accelerated fuel quality degradation.
