What is Bioheat® fuel? Bioheat® fuel is the industry-accepted term for any blend of pure Biodiesel with conventional high or low sulfur home heating oil. The heating oil must meet its specification, ASTM D 396 and the Biodiesel must meet its ASTM specification, ASTM D 6751, before blending them together.
 
What is Biodiesel? Biodiesel is a clean burning alternative fuel produced from vegetable oils and animal fats through a chemical reaction and meeting
ASTM D 6751. Biodiesel contains no petroleum, but it can be blended at any level with heating oil. It can be used in home heating oil systems safely with no modifications to the fuel tanks, pumps or burners in concentrations up to 20% Biodiesel with only minimal precautions (see conditions for use section). For higher Bioheat® fuel blends than 20% Biodiesel, special precautions are needed (see materials compatibility).Pure Biodiesel is also referred to as B100. In the transportation fuel market where ASTM D 975 is the standard for petroleum-based diesel, Biodiesel blends are designated ‘BXX’, where XX is the volume percent of Biodiesel meeting ASTM D 6751 with conventional petrodiesel. B20, which is 20% Biodiesel and 80% petrodiesel, is a common blend for fleets and buses. The heating oil market is focusing on Bioheat® fuel, which is a 2 to 20% blend of Biodiesel with heating oil.
