A new choice in fuel is here! Caltex Bio E-Flex contains up to
85% ethanol and provides an energy option beyond traditional fuel
mix, which is something we can all feel good about.
The ethanol in Bio E-Flex is made from sources like waste starch
from wheat processing, molasses from sugar production and sorghum,
which is grown for ethanol manufacture and stock feed.
The highly renewable ethanol content in Bio E-Flex helps reduce
greenhouse gas emissions and our dependence on traditional fossil
fuels like petrol, which means it's a better choice for the
environment and Australia.
The science behind it all is actually quite simple. Plants,
which are used to produce ethanol, absorb carbon dioxide from the
atmosphere. When the ethanol in Bio E-Flex is burned in engines,
the released carbon dioxide goes into the atmosphere and is used by
plants to grow. This "cycling" of carbon creates less carbon
dioxide in the atmosphere than fossil fuels.
Bio E-Flex is specially formulated to meet your flex fuel car's
requirements all year round. Because each season can change the way
fuel performs in your engine, Caltex will adjust the blend of
ethanol from 70 to 85% between seasons, to make sure your engine
Bio E-Flex can only be used in flex fuel vehicles though, so
consult your vehicle manufacturer if you're not sure which fuel is
best for your car.
Bio E-Flex is on sale at selected locations in Adelaide,
Brisbane, Canberra, Melbourne and Sydney. To find your nearest
service station please visit our Caltex site locator.

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%
