The paper presents experimental research results concerning the influence of B20 biodiesel blend on urban buses operation and maintenance in Craiova city. There are presented original data by using thermovision to determine correlations between B20 biodiesel blend fuel used in buses’ engine and, the engine’s temperature. There are presented potential incompatibilities between B20 biodiesel and common elastomers used in seals and hoses.
