The biodiesel indus­try is cel­e­brat­ing the news that Gen­eral Motors has launched its new 2014 Chevro­let Cruze light-duty diesel pas­sen­ger car approved for use with 20 per­cent biodiesel blends (B20).

“We applaud Gen­eral Motors for its fore­sight in approv­ing the new diesel Chevy Cruze for use with B20 biodiesel blends,” said Steve How­ell , Tech­ni­cal Direc­tor for the National Biodiesel Board. “Many peo­ple do not real­ize that today’s new tech­nol­ogy diesel engines pow­ered by ultra-low sul­fur biodiesel blends pro­vide tailpipe emis­sions as clean or cleaner than nat­ural gas or gaso­line, while pro­vid­ing supe­rior fuel econ­omy, horse­power, and dura­bil­ity. In addi­tion, when you com­bine the increased effi­ciency diesel engines with the low car­bon nature of an Advanced Bio­fuel like biodiesel, new tech­nol­ogy diesel engines are posi­tioned to become the clean—and green—technology of the future, and we’re proud to see GM lead­ing the way with its sup­port for B20.”
