Morton, Ill, September 25, 2018 – A new video, entitled “Biodiesel by a Mile”, that promotes the many advantages of biodiesel fuel use versus traditional fuel has been produced and funded by the Illinois Soybean Association checkoff program. G&D Integrated, a provider of transportation and logistics services, partnered with the group to provide drivers, trucks, and other resources in the production of the video.
Millions of individuals and fleets across the United States use biodiesel fuel for efficient and economical diesel vehicle performance. G&D Integrated is an inaugural member of the B20 Club which is comprised of a select group of Illinois-based organizations with strong commitments to run fleets on biodiesel blends of 20 percent or greater. Made from oils and fats, such as soybean oil, B100 or “pure” biodiesel is typically blended with petroleum diesel to create blends like B20 – a combination of 20 percent biodiesel and 80 percent regular diesel.
Today’s biodiesel is a reliable, high-performance fuel that works in any diesel engine without modifications, according to the Illinois Soybean Association’s website. The video highlights the many benefits of biodiesel fuel use which includes fewer emissions, reduced engine wear, and Illinois state sales tax benefits.
