Because all biodiesel
is not the same...
Our quality standards exceed
national ASTM specifications.
You benefit from our experience. Since
1994, the FS System has been supplying and
conducting field trials with biodiesel. Today,
we are a national leader in the marketing
and distribution of biodiesel blends. We have
developed and adopted the best biodiesel
handling, storage, and filtration practices in
the industry. Our dedication to quality means
you’ll be using the very best biodiesel products
available today.
We believe diesel engine operators and drivers
have enough on their minds without having
to worry about the quality of their fuel. That’s
why we’ve implemented a quality assurance
program for our suppliers that not only meets,
but exceeds American Society for Testing and
Materials (ASTM) standards. To ensure consistent
product quality, we only market biodiesel
from BQ9000 certified or soon-to-be certified
manufacturers. You can rely on the superior
quality of biodiesel blends from FS.
For an even better performing fuel, we
recommend blending biodiesel with our
FS Dieselex® Gold premium diesel fuel.
You’ll experience enhanced operability with
improved cold starting characteristics, better
fuel stability for longer storage, and cleaner
injectors for improved fuel economy and power.
Also, our cold flow improver, SURE-FLO™ helps
combat cold temperature issues so you can
avoid gelled fuel and plugged filters.
We applaud our customers who already use
home grown fuels such as biodiesel. You can
count on FS to set the standard as a leading
fuel supplier, dedicated to quality and satisfying
our customers’ needs.
