Fuels produced using plant-based materials can offer a promising way to reduce the carbon emitted by road vehicles.

That’s because their plant feedstocks absorb carbon dioxide from the air, bringing them far closer to a carbon-neutral footprint than any fuel refined from crude oil.

But for diesel-powered vehicles, the term “biodiesel” is used loosely and imprecisely–and often covers anything from plant-derived fuels to burning used deep-frier grease in your converted old Mercedes.
