Fact or Fiction? Bioheat® fuel is a blend of ultra-low sulfur heating fuel with renewable biodiesel.

Fact or Fiction? Biodiesel is made from trash.
FICTION! Biodiesel is not made from trash in a landfill. Instead, it is made from agricultural byproducts that would otherwise go to waste (and maybe end up in that landfill!), like inedible corn oil, soybean oil, animal fats, and used cooking oil.
Fact or Fiction? There is only one kind of Bioheat® fuel.
FICTION! Bioheat® fuel comes in a variety of blends ranging from 5% biodiesel content up to 20% biodiesel content. The higher the biodiesel content, the lower the emissions the fuel produces.
