Biodiesel is a domestic product that increases the price of soybeans by more than 70 cents per bushel. Not only does it provide independence from foreign petroleum, it’s also a significant economic driver for ag producers throughout the country.
Biodiesel has higher lubricity, which means less engine wear and higher component life without reduced performance. With biodiesel, there’s no difference in fuel consumption, horsepower or torque when compared to conventional diesel fuel.
Cleaner-burning, nontoxic and renewable, biodiesel is a sustainable fuel source that reduces greenhouse gas emissions by more than 75 percent when compared to petroleum diesel. To put it into perspective, imagine removing nearly a million passenger vehicles from America’s roadways.
Biodiesel is a clean-burning renewable fuel made using natural vegetable oils and fats. It does not require costly modifications to diesel engines and is superior to pre-2006 diesel. Blends up to B100 are today’s solution for heavy-duty trucking, emergency vehicles, bus fleets, farm equipment and other diesel engines as the world works towards a decarbonized future.

What Others Are Saying About Biodiesel
We are proud to provide fuel choices for our customers, like biodiesel, that are made from local renewable resources, support local Nebraska farmers and economies, and reduce toxic compounds in fuel.
Biodiesel use supports Nebraska’s economy and local communities, and Sapp Bros. believes in providing biodiesel blends for Nebraska retailers, fleets, farmers and other diesel users.
“Diesel users can rest assured that biodiesel is a high-quality, high-performance fuel. It improves fuel characteristics like lubricity and cetane; meets sustainability goals; and adds value to each bushel of soybeans grown in Nebraska. It’s a win-win for Nebraska, its diesel users and farmers.”
