Welcome to Houston Biodiesel
Weather outlook is warm to cool. You can run B100 for the foreseeable future. It's February to you we're expecting one more cold snap.
Winter Rules are in Effect - To keep biodiesel from freezing just blend in some diesel when temps drop below 50F.
Rule of thumb is to run B80 during the winter months when temps are down to 40F.
Run B50 if the temps drop into the 30's.
Run B30 below freezing.
Houston Biodiesel accepts used cooking oil for responsible disposal at any time during the year.
Houston Biodiesel is currently offering pump biodiesel at well below the price of diesel fuel. As such we're getting a lot of new biodiesel users. You don't need to be a biodiesel expert to use it as a fuel. All you need to know is that you use it just like diesel fuel. Don't complicate it. Just fill up your tank and drive. No vehicle modifications required. No voided warranties.
Biodiesel pump price is $1.999/gallon - taxes included
Biodiesel is an EPA approved alternative diesel fuel that burns cleaner, quieter and with a pleasant odor vs diesel fuel. Any diesel vehicle can use biodiesel and it will not effect your warranty. You can blend biodiesel with diesel fuel in any ratio. During the winter months we recommend B80 or 80% biodiesel with 20% diesel. When temperature drop below 40F go B50 to guard from gelling.

Biodiesel is far superior to diesel on most points. It's not the perfect fuel but wins hands down on most points. Here are some facts sourced from the EPA. Hands down biodiesel produces fewer overall emissions than petroleum diesel. Biodiesel sourced from a rather inefficient oil crop such as soy has a net CO2 reduction of 78% (if you produce biodiesel from recycled waste oil the benefits are far greater and have not yet been measured), 70% less hydrocarbon emissions, 40% less carbon monoxide emissions, and 50% less particulate emissions (cancer causing fine particles), NOX are about the same. Biodiesel has much greater lubricity and higher cetane than diesel fuel. This helps make up for about a 7% net BTU loss vs diesel on average. Yes biodiesel on average has 7% less energy per unit of volume. Not a bad trade off considering the huge environmental and sustainable benefits.
How it works at Houston Biodiesel: just pull up to the pump and fill up, and then use your credit/debit card, check or cash to settle up with one of our knowledgeable staff. Our staff will help you determine if running pure B100 or a blend of biodiesel is right for your particular vehicle. Our customers include individuals driving diesel vehicles, companies with diesel equipment, farmers, truckers, dump trucks, and just about anyone who has a diesel motor or kerosene heater. We'd be happy to "talk" biodiesel for use in your application (as long as we have a free moment) to anyone who calls or comes by for a visit.
