Biogas is gas produced from organic materials like plant waste, animal excrement etc.

I intend to build a biogas plant on my farm - can I use biogas to run my diesel engines?

In its usual form you cannot use low pressure biogas to power diesel engines.

There are experiments going on to do this, but to date the results have not been good.

In America and Europe biogas is getting converted to RNG (Renewable Natural Gas) on a very large scale.
RNG and  LNG (Liquefied Natural Gas) can both be used to run diesel engines. 
Some garages in Sweden and Germany only sell RNG while others only sell LNG.

In short, you cannot use biogas to run your diesel engines, but you can use RNG if you can produce it from your biogas.

If you run on gas here, probably it'll be LNG from Sasol,
but there's no reason it can't also be RNG from your farms.

If the boat capsizes it must right itself - like a kid's
rubber duck, and it does!
Of course this means the engine must carry on working      
when totally inverted without loosing a pulse!
