[13] using the ISO 16332 test stand methodology claimed that the addition of just 5% biodiesel (B5) can reduce water separation efficiency in the fuel from 95% to 85% due to a decrease in the fuel IFT (22.9 mN/m to 12.9 mN/m) as well as increase the separation time (13 s to 150 s - according to the sedimentation test, ASTM D 1401).
