Availability of Mercedes-Benz diesel vehicles set to continue in Illinois
Loeber Motors near Chicago offers drivers clean transportation
CHICAGO, Oct. 28, 2013 /PRNewswire-iReach/ -- Expected to continue November 2013, biodiesel compatible engines on Mercedes-Benz vehicles will be available once again in Illinois. Several years ago, Mercedes-Benz halted allocations of its BlueTEC diesel engines to Illinois, and now for 2014, Mercedes-Benz's BlueTEC engine is back and better than ever as one of the industry's most advanced diesel engines.
Biodiesel is a conventional diesel fuel substitute that is formed when processed with methanol using vegetable oil and used cooking oil. Being a domestic product to the U.S., biodiesel reduces dependence on foreign energy sources as well as supports the U.S economy.
Improving the design and returning stronger than ever, the Mercedes-Benz line of BlueTEC engines can now properly utilize B5 biofuel. Biodiesel-consuming engines are available on some of their most popular vehicles including the GLK, M, GL, and E-Class. Providing emission passing ratings and some of the highest fuel economy marks for their respective classes, the Mercedes-Benz BlueTEC engines are great options for drivers searching for an alternative to gas-powered vehicles. Models such as the 2014 Mercedes-Benz GLK250 SUV is one of the vehicles highlighted for the winter months at Loeber Motors near Chicago due to its available four-wheel drive option, as well as its class leading fuel efficiency rating of up to 33 mpg highway.
Mercedes-Benz has been producing diesel powered passenger vehicles since 1936 with the introduction of the Mercedes-Benz 260D. A car ahead of its time, the Mercedes-Benz 260D was the first to use this new fuel technology, allowing it to achieve a 30% better fuel efficiency than before. From the days of the 260D to today's BlueTEC engine, Mercedes-Benz has continued to produce some of the most advanced and cleanest-burning diesel engines in the world. In fact, the BlueTEC engine is so advanced it can use both ultralow-sulfur fuel and B5 biodiesel, an obstacle the previous Mercedes-Benz diesel engines could not overcome. The secret behind this engineering feat can be seen in the BlueTEC's highly advanced design, giving the engine more precise components, a variable-vane turbo design, and a liquid solution called AdBlue. AdBlue, when injected into the exhaust, turns harmful nitrogen oxide emissions into clean nitrogen and oxygen.
