Biodiesel -also called biofuel- is a fuel comparable in performance to traditional diesel fuel. Biodiesel is generally created from waste, or virgin vegetable oils, or animal fats. However, producing biofuels costs (pre tax) are about twice as much as fossil fuels, depending on the cost of feedstock and crude oil. With full fuel duty they are therefore too expensive to buy and a reduction in the duty rate is needed to make them competitive at the pumps.
