HVO Diesel For Van Fleets
HVO, or Hydrotreated Vegetable Oil, is a renewable diesel fuel made from vegetable oils or animal fats through a process called hydrotreatment. It is a sustainable alternative to traditional diesel fuel and has several benefits for use in vans and other diesel-powered vehicles.
Here are some key points to consider about HVO diesel for vans:
Renewable and Sustainable
HVO is derived from renewable sources such as used cooking oils and waste animal fats. This makes it a more environmentally friendly option compared to fossil fuels because it reduces greenhouse gas emissions.
HVO can be used in existing diesel engines without any modifications. Vans can run on HVO without the need for engine adjustments or changes to the fuel system.
HVO diesel has lower emissions of carbon dioxide (CO2), nitrogen oxides (NOx), particulate matter (PM), and sulphur compared to traditional diesel. This greatly improves air quality and is a meaningful cut in pollution.
HVO has excellent burning properties, which preserve injectors and diesel particulate filters for longer engine life and lower maintenance costs for van owners.
HVO has a similar energy density to conventional diesel, so it provides similar power and range for vans and other vehicles. It is at its best around town where the smoother driving can really be felt.
Cold Weather Performance
HVO has good cold weather performance and can flow at lower temperatures than other biofuels, making it suitable for use in cold climates and stable for storage.
This varies by location, and it may not be as readily available as traditional diesel in some areas. However, its availability is increasing as more companies use renewable diesel and we can provide compact diesel dispenser tanks or even mobile fuelling straight into your vehicles.
The cost of HVO diesel is around 25% more than fossil diesel fuel
Many countries and regions have implemented policies and regulations to encourage the use of renewable fuels like HVO fuel for cars to reduce carbon emissions from transportation.
HVO diesel is a promising option for reducing the environmental impact of vans and other diesel-powered vehicles while maintaining compatibility and performance. If you are considering using HVO in your van fleet please drop us an email to: email@example.com
