German engine maker Deutz AG released a service fluid recommendations announcement on April 26 approving various blends of biodiesel for different engine applications, ranging from the standard European B7 blend to B30; and in some cases Deutz approves the use of neat biodiesel, or B100.

All Deutz engines from Tier 4 Interim/Stage III B are approved for B7 use. "This is possible because Deutz engines, looking to the future, have been designed to be compatible with environmentally acceptable fuels," the company stated. "The result is the optimum interaction between fuel and engine."

Deutz also issued further approvals for running Tier 3 engines on biodiesel.

The TCD 2015 engine series, which Deutz bills as "the engine for construction equipment," is now approved for B100.

Also, the TCD 2013 4-valve commercial vehicle series for Euro 4/5 emissions standards has been approved for running on B30.

Of course, the company only approves methyl esters meeting the European quality specification, EN 14214.
