A new choice in fuel has arrived: Caltex Bio E-Flex, a fuel that
contains up to 85% ethanol. Bio E-Flex provides an energy option
beyond the traditional fuel mix - something we can all feel good
The high renewable ethanol content in Bio E-Flex helps reduce
greenhouse gas emissions and our reliance on traditional fossil
fuels like petrol, so it's a better choice for the environment and
The ethanol in Bio E-Flex is made from sources such as waste
starch from processing of wheat, molasses from sugar production and
sorghum, which is grown for ethanol manufacture and stock
feed. Ethanol is a renewable alternative to traditional fuels which
are made from crude oil.
Plants which are used to produce ethanol absorb carbon dioxide
from the atmosphere. When the ethanol component of Bio E-Flex is
burned in engines, the carbon dioxide released goes into the
atmosphere and is used by plants to grow. This "cycling" of carbon
creates less build-up of carbon dioxide in the atmosphere than
fossil fuels. The emission savings will depend on the plants used,
ethanol production processes and freight.
Bio E-Flex is specially formulated to meet your flex fuel car's
requirements all year round. Different seasons can change the way
fuel performs in your engine, so Caltex will adjust the blend of
ethanol from 70 to 85% between seasons to ensure your engine
Bio E-Flex can only be used in flex fuel vehicles, so please
consult your vehicle manufacturer if you're unsure about the
correct fuel to use in your car.
Bio E-Flex is on sale at selected locations in Adelaide, Brisbane,
Canberra, Melbourne and Sydney. To find your nearest service

Diesel - Diesel enhanced with biodiesel
Caltex produces a range of biodiesel blends.
'Neat' or straight biodiesel is a diesel replacement fuel made from
non-fossil fuel sources that can be mixed with ordinary diesel
in any proportion.
Biodiesel is manufactured in Australia mostly from used cooking
oil and animal fats (tallow). Caltex blends biodiesel with standard
extra-low-sulfur petroleum diesel to create Bio B5 Diesel, a
diesel/biodiesel mixture containing 5% biodiesel, and Bio B20
Diesel, a mixture containing 20% biodiesel.
These products, available only to commercial customers, are
drop-in substitutes for regular diesel that can play a significant
role in reducing greenhouse gas emissions and assist in providing
long-term solutions to climate change.
Bio B5 Diesel and Bio B20 Diesel are available for
commercial sale from our Sydney, Newcastle, Adelaide terminals and
our Rocklea depot in Brisbane. While Bio B5 Diesel is the most
widely used blend of its kind on the market, demand for B20 is
growing rapidly because it further enhances the benefits associated
with biodiesel usage.
All vehicles or machinery that normally run on automotive diesel
can use Bio B5 Diesel with no engine modifications. The
Australian Diesel Standard specifies an allowance of up to 5%
