The Morrisons supermarket chain in the UK are now offering B30 biodiesel
at 50 of the filling stations it operates. The blend of 30 percent biodiesel and 70 percent petro-diesel is one of the highest commercially available concentrations that is actually approved by an automaker. Peugeot
have certified all the diesel vehicles
it has built for the past decade for use with B30. An estimated 1.5 million HDi models from Puegeot/Citroen are warrantied
for use with the newly available fuel. The biofuel
component of the fuel being offered by Morrisons is comprised of equal parts waste vegetable oil and rapeseed (canola) oil. Ford
has not determined whether the diesel
engines that it has jointly developed with Peugeot are capable of operating safely on B30.
