Reduce carbon emissions with our new sustainable fuel available for delivery across Cumbria and Southern Scotland.
HVO is a fossil-free alternative to DERV that has been specially formulated to produce significantly lower Carbon Dioxide and Nitrogen Oxide tailpipe emissions that delivers a cleaner more efficient combustion burn. It is more efficient with a higher cetane rating, and has a tank-life of up to 10 years. It is non-hygroscopic which guarantees it will not suffer from diesel-bug or cause fuels systems to fail from moisture-related causes.

HVO is manufactured to BS EN 15940, the specification for paraffinic diesel fuels, and it allows businesses to continue their work with a fuel that dramatically reduces the organisations carbon footprint without compromising on performance.
There are many benefits to switching over to sustainable fuels, including:
Renewable diesel is chemically similar to conventional fossil fuel based diesel but it is derived from sources such as cooking oil, fats, greases and vegetable oils.
Renewable diesel has a shelf life of up to 10 years and does not require heated storage or any maintenance from additional additives meaning it can used throughout the year without any impact on performance when temperatures do drop.
Renewable diesel has been designed to withstand temperatures of -32 degrees Celsius - this provides trouble-free usage throughout the winter months. As it does not contain oxygen, there is no risk of oxidation occurring and it cannot absorb water so there is no risk of microbial attack.
No. HVO is 100% interchangeable with fossil diesel and can blended into existing supplies. This means there is no need to drain or clean fuel tanks before making the switch.
It can be used across a range of applications including; non-road mobile machinery, passenger cars, and light, medium or heavy commercial vehicles.
The switch to renewable diesel means fewer pollutants from the first day of usage. It emits up to 9% less nitrous oxide; up to 33% fewer fine particulates; and up to 24% less carbon monoxide. It also brings a 90% net reduction in greenhouse gas CO2 emissions.
