B20 biodiesel approved for Cats

Caterpillar has approved the use of B20 biodiesel – a 20% biodiesel blend – for use across its range of compact and mid-range engines for commercial and I ndustrial applications.

The company believes the growth of biodiesel as a fuel source and the move to higher percentage blends makes approval of this fuel source a strategic market advantage for OEMs and end users.

Addition of these engines to the B20 approved product line follows successful testing of higher percentage blended fuels in a number of installations.

‘This announcement further confirms Cat’s commitment to its industrial customers by bringing the broadest range of biodiesel compatible engines to market.’ said Cat industrial engine marketing manager Mike Reinhart.
