Statistical analysis was performed on the John Deere engine deposit ratings. Results revealed heavier deposits in most areas of the combustion chamber of the three engines fueled with the 50% sunflower oil/50% No. 2 diesel fuel blend. No detrimental engine deposits due to differences in engine size were observed. Based on this study, use of a 25% sunflower oil/75% No. 2 diesel fuel blend or a 50% sunflower oil/50% No. 2 diesel fuel blend as a substitute diesel fuel cannot be recommended.
