For all vehicles on Enterprise's fleet, use of B30 Bio diesel will invalidate the manufacturer's warranty, and therefore any engine damage would become the financial responsibility of Enterprise Rent-A-Car and if traced, such repair costs may be passed on to customers. It is possible on some vehicles to trace via a vehicle's engine management system or by specific evaluation at what point such a fuel has been used.
