The National Oilheat Research Alliance (NORA) holds the license to B5, a form of soybean oil, which can be mixed into regular home heating oil. The United Laboratories (UL) certified B5 because it meets their strict standards of performance. Since 2007, our biofuel product has been a blend of 95% regular home heating oil and 5% B5. In July 2010, the state mandated that all MA fuel dealers were required to convert to a 2% blend of B5 and upgrade to a 5% blend by 2013. Industry experts predict the B5 blend ratio could increase to a 20% in the near future.
How Do You Benefit from Bioheat Fuel?
Our Bioheat fuel blend produces the same satisfying heat as standard home heating oil and burns cleaner so that your heating system actually runs better, reducing overall consumption. It costs the same as regular home heating oil, and you don’t have to purchase any new equipment or make any modifications to your burner or tank to use Bioheat. Improved efficiency, reduced consumption, increased savings—that’s a win any way you look at it in our book.

Steps toward Energy Independence
We believe Bioheat fuel helps conserve oil, protects the environment, and since it’s manufactured here in the U.S., it makes the country more self-reliant.
In 2007, Snow’s was among the first Cape dealers to offer Bioheat® fuel. We did it because we care about our customers, we care about the Cape, and we care about the environment. We are committed to offering our customers Bioheat with the highest blend ratio available. Quite simply, we believe offering a cleaner, greener, renewable fuel is the right thing to do.
