FPT Industrial has approved B-20 biodiesel for use in its NEF4, NEF 6, and CURSOR Tier 4 Final diesel engines. This announcement makes all Case Construction Equipment G Series wheel loaders approved for use with B-20 biodiesel directly from the factory.
Wheel loaders in these size classes are used extensively in construction, public works, road and bridge construction, concrete and asphalt production, aggregates, and agriculture. The announcement comes after extensive testing by FPT where it was confirmed that these engines performed comparably to the same engines powered by off-road diesel. The study highlighted no adverse effects to the engines.
B-20 biodiesel is the most prevalent blend of biodiesel available in North America. Even with this announcement, it is important that all owners of construction equipment consult with their dealer and the warranty of their equipment before using biodiesel in their machines.
