If your escort has a diesel motor, it can be done. But it requires replacement of the fuel lines, fuel pump, and injectors.

They can run on biodiesel without modification, although some modification is required in order to get them to run optimally on biodiesel.

Just about any diesel vehicle will run on biodiesel.

I have a ford transit 2009, can you run it on biodeisel? or what alterations are needed to run the van on biodiesel?

Diesel engines. Engines that run on fossil fuel diesel oil can also run on biodiesel, which is oil made from plants.

Convert them to run on biodiesel.

Any diesel engine can run on quality biodiesel. Older engines even better. New engines can loose their warranty if you use biodiesel, so please check.

Biodiesel most certainly does NOT ruin your engine. Most engine manufacturer in the world approves the use of biodiesel in their engines, unless of course your engine is not made to run on diesel fuel. Gasoline engines should not be ran on Biodiesel.Actually, if you don't change out your fuel pump, injectors, and fuel lines to accommodate the much thicker biodiesel fuel, it CAN ruin your engine.

biodiesel = el biodiésel

Because its disadvantages far outweigh its advantages. ULSD motors require expensive conversions to run on biodiesel (contrary to what seems to be popular belief, you don't just pump biodiesel into any ULSD motor without conversion), and it doesn't perform as well as ULSD #2 does.

Yes, biofuel, like biodiesel, will run in diesel engines. Many ships have diesel engines run on fossil fuel diesel and they will easily run on biofuel.

Wikipedia provides an excellent encyclopedia style article on biodiesel fuel. Other websites that offer information about biodiesel fuel are the U.S. Department of Energy's Biodiesel page and the National Biodiesel Board's page.

Yes it is safe to mix petroleum diesel and biodiesel. Blends of biodiesel and petroleum diesel are designated "BX." Where "B" states that the fuel mixture is a biodiesel blend and "X" indicates the percentage of biodiesel in the blend. For example, common blends of biodiesel in North America include B2 (2% biodiesel), B5(5%), B20(20%), and B100(100%). B100 is also know as "neat," or pure, biodiesel.

They can run on renewable electricity.They can run on hydrogen.They can run on fuel cells generating electricity using a renewable biofuel.They can run on biodiesel or a similar biofuel.

Yes, you can buy a hybrid that uses biodiesel but they are much harder to come by than hybrids that don't use biodiesel or biodiesel cars that aren't hybrids.

the biodiesel should be used in the diesel engine, and there are some biodiesel motorbike has been produced such BWM

Biodiesel contain fatty acids esters.

You often only find biodiesel in the Midwest or areas where corn is a big market. Biodiesel is made out of corn and that's why. Biodiesel will make your diesel engine get better gas mileage just so you know.

Biodiesel is replenishable where fossil fuels aren't. Biodiesel is made from biomass such as corn, rapeseed, sugarcane and even algae. The CO2 produced from burning biodiesel is indirectly reabsorbed by the plants that will make the next batch of biodiesel. Fossil fuels just release CO2.

Assuming its a diesel...then you dont have to do anything. As long as you make good quality filtered biodiesel. I've been making it for a while. Bought a 150L kit from Scintex Biofuels. Havent had any troubles running biodiesel on my GQ Patrol but i always filter down to 1uM just to make sure my fuel filters dont get clogged. Out.

Biodiesel is one form of biofuel. Ethanol is another.

Biodiesel is mainly composed of fatty acid methyl ester

Biodiesel is not commonly used because they are flammable .

You have to make minor modifications to run any diesel engine on biofuel. You may have to preheat the biodiesel through an add on device as vegetable oil is too viscuous to burn cold in a diesel engine. Here's a site with more information No, you would need to purchase a generator that is set up to take biodiesel. Or modify your current diesel generator. There are instructions on how to do this on the internet. Try to google how to modify a generator to run on biodiesel.

See the related link to the National Biodiesel Board's - Retailer Map.Look there for a retailer in your state.When shopping for biodiesel, however, make sure that they sell biodiesel that conforms to the most recent ASTM standard.
