An important new campaign lead by our friends Robin and Michele at Dogpatch Biofuels. Please take a moment to check out the website and sign the petition. This issue has the potential to spin out of control and cause great damage to the emerging biodiesel industry. Please act now!
Please check out a new campaign website: savebiodiesel.org !
We sent out an e-mail about a month ago regarding the compatibility issues arising with biodiesel and new diesel vehicles. To quickly re-cap: the method in which many engine manufacturers are handling new emissions control systems (year 2007.5 and newer) involve in-cylinder injection of fuel late in the engine cycle. This has been shown to lead to engine oil dilution which is exasperated by the use of biodiesel, in blends from B5 to B100.
In order to make it easier to gather support (and at the great suggestion of some of our customers) we have created a website detailing the issue and an online petition which will go out to engine manufacturers along with the California Air Resources board and the EPA. The idea is to build grass roots support from us, the consumer, to demonstrate why biodiesel needs to be a viable option for all diesel vehicles.
We invite you to browse the website (savebiodiesel.org) to learn more about the issue and please add your name to the petition.
In addition please contact us if you have ideas about how to build this campaign. And please share the website with anyone you think would be interested.
Thank-you for your support!
