Which Cars Can Use Biofuel?
Many people are surprised to find that they have been putting biofuel in their cars since 2010, when the Biofuels Obligation Scheme was introduced in Ireland.
This scheme, administered by the National Oil Reserves Agency, requires fuel suppliers to provide fuel with a portion of biofuel blended into it to be distributed at forecourts.
Biofuel is compatible with emissions control systems of most internal combustion engine vehicles that run on diesel. Using biofuel reduces emissions of CO2, particulate matter and Hydrocarbon for all cars running on it.
Any car that normally runs on diesel can safely and efficiently run on a diesel and biofuel mix. At present the amount of biofuel blended with diesel in Ireland is 13%. The aim is to increase this ratio of biofuel to diesel to 35% by 2030. For more information, see the website of the National Oil Reserves Agency
