Biodiesel can be used in nearly any diesel engine, with little or no engine conversion. However, biodiesel is a stronger solvent than petrodiesel -- so much so that it will not only "clean out" the fuel tank, sending debris into the fuel filter, but it will also soften and dissolve many rubber and plastic products, including those used in fuel lines, filters and pumps. This deterioration can take years, however, and the replacement of rubber components does not have to happen immediately.
