With the availabe rapeseed producing field data costs and the volume of biofuel consumed to date we have estimated that the biofuel consumed is 20.3% cheaper than conventional diesel. With this information we estimate that we have managed to save 656€ so far in this trial. In addition, using this biofuel resulted in a 16.1% CO2 equivalents emissions reduction. Therefore, the use of rapeseed oil as biofuel blended with diesel could result in both an improvement of farm income and a reduction of of greenhouse gases emissions associated with farming activities.
