Proven Benefits of using Biodiesel
- Biodiesel produces less toxic emissions.
- Biodiesel improves air quality
- Biodiesel Improves Engine Operation,reduces the number of vibrations, smoke and noise produced.
- Biodiesel is biodegradable
Centurion Biodiesel Quality Test
Our high quality standards are our promise to you. Compare our standards to Sabs and International standards. Tested by an Independant laboratory that specializes in the testing of biodiesel.
Waste Vegatable Oil
We Recycle and convert Waste Vegetable Oil (WVO) into biodesiel which exceeds local and international standards. It is illegal to dispose of waste vegetable oil into drains. All parties who collect WVO, contact us, we will buy it from you, protecting our enviroment by recycling it into biodiesel.
Advantages of Using biodiesel
- Blending- ability to fit almost seamlessly into the existing fuel distribution and retail sales system.
- Biodegradable and non-toxic - the ideal fuel choice when used in environmentally sensitive areas.
- High Cetane Value- offering improved ignition performance, fuel ignition will be smoother and more complete improving combustion and reducing emissions from unburned fuel.
- High Lubricity - biodiesel has excellent lubricating properties, far in excess of those of petrodiesel, which help to reduce fuel system and engine wear.
- Low emissions- as a renewable fuel source, biodiesel operates on a closed carbon cycle which reduces CO2 production.
- Improved combustion means significant reduction in Particulate Matter or soot-exhaust emissions.
- Renewable Fuel source with Low Sulphur content has positive impact on society and the environment.
Did you know?
Biodiesel can be operated in any modern diesel engine that uses synthetic rubber in the fuel system. Pure biodiesel (B100) actually cleans your fuel system. This is due to a solvent effect, which may release deposits accumulated on tank walls and pipes from previous diesel fuel use. When biodiesel is first introduced into an older vehicle, the release of deposits may clog filters initially and precautions should be taken to replace fuel filters more frequently until the petroleum build-up has been eliminated. This issue is less prevalent with B20 blends, and there is no evidence that lower-blend levels such as B2 have caused filters to plug.
Did you know?
The recent switch to low-sulfur diesel fuel has caused most Original Equipment Manufacturers (OEMs) to switch to components that are also suitable for use with biodiesel. In general, biodiesel used in pure form can soften and degrade certain types of elastomers and natural rubber compounds over time. Using high percent blends can impact fuel system components (primarily fuel hoses and fuel pump seals) that contain elastomer compounds incompatible with biodiesel, although the effect is lessened as the biodiesel blend level is decreased. Experience with B20 has found that no changes to gaskets or hoses are necessary.
