Technical Information

Biotane reduces hydrocarbon (HC) and carbon monoxide (CO) emissions from most diesel engines or modern four-stroke compression ignitions. These benefits occur because biodiesel contains 11% oxygen by weight. Oxygen allows the fuel to burn more completely, so fewer unburned fuel emissions result. A review from the US Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) confirmed the positive impact of B20 on emissions of HC (hydrocarbon), CO (carbon monoxide), PM (particular matter).
