Biodiesel is a domestically produced, renewable fuel that can be manufactured from vegetable oils, animal fats, or recycled restaurant grease for use in diesel vehicles. Biodiesel’s physical properties are similar to those of petroleum diesel but it is a cleaner-burning alternative. It can be used in existing diesel engines without modification and is covered by all major engine manufacturers’ warranties
