Hino Trucks' complete product line of Class 4 and 5 cabover, and Class 6 and 7 conventional trucks are now approved to use up to B20 biodiesel,
a blend of traditional petroleum diesel fuel with 20 percent biodiesel.
All 2011 and 2012 model year cabover and conventional trucks, powered with Hino's proprietary J-Series engines, are approved to use biodiesel B20 blends that contain biofuel blend stock compliant to American Society for Testing and Materials D6751, and blended fuel compliant to ASTM D975.
B20 biodiesel meeting these standards is also approved for use in Hino's newly announced diesel-electric hybrid cabover due to enter the market late this fall.
Hino trucks built prior to the 2011 model year are approved to use B5 biodiesel. All biodiesel fuels used in Hino trucks must be purchased from a fuel handler licensed under BQ9000.
