Percent Biodiesel, Ethanol, Water Content, Acidity

Alternative fuels are derived from renewable sources such as vegetable and animal oils; ethanol from sugar or cellulose; solar radiation from the sun, and from other sources of energy not derived from fossil fuels. Biodiesel and ethanol are two renewable energy sources In the fuel marketplace worldwide. These energy sources are added to refined fossil fuels such as diesel fuel, home heating oil, and gasoline. To ensure that these blended fuels meet alternative fuel standards set by the industry, analytical testing should be performed before these fuels reach the consumer. Dexsil Corporation has developed on-site test kits to meet some of these needs.
