We hope your as impressed with the fuel
mileage that we were when burning our home brew BioDiesel!
MPG averages burning various fuel sources over a 6 month 10,000 mile period.
Note: B100 is our home made 100% pure BioDiesel Fuel
Except for seasonal differences, the driving conditions in the chart above were all identical with 60% to 70% of the miles driven on the freeway over 100 miles non-stop. Shown in order of best to worst MPG with our BioDiesel MPG being just 7.3% lower than our best MPG from Fred Meyer #2 diesel fuel. Not bad considering the Fred Meyer fuel was purchased at near $2.50 per gallon compared with just $0.70 per gallon for our pure B100 BioDiesel.
In 2006 instead of B100, we decided to
experiment with blends of BioDiesel and #2 Diesel fuel.
Test results when burning an average Blend of 39.6% BioDiesel Fuel over 5301 miles.
Total Fuel cost savings
$309.07 = $2.59 per gallon savings x 119.2 gallons BioDiesel consumed
Later results of burning various BioDiesel Fuel blends were about the same as previously reported.
Nothing extraordinary to report except we saved a lot of money on the price of fuel!
