Myth: Bioheat® does not have sufficient shelf life.

Fact: The ASTM specification for B100 biodiesel used in Bioheat® has a stringent stability parameter as defined by ASTM 06751. This is more stringent than heating oil which has no specification for stability or storage life. The ASTM 06751 specification was set to ensure a biodiesel blend shelf life of a minimum of six months. Most testing indicates blends made with ASTM 06751 biodiesel will stay within specification for 12 months or longer in storage. You should treat Bioheat® blends like conventional home heating oil to protect the finished blend from fuel degradation associated with time and temperature.
