Renewable Diesel for California and Oregon

Both our California and Oregon operations are pleased to offer renewable diesel fuel delivery as an authorized distributor of Neste MY Renewable Diesel. We use multiple sources to be able to provide you with renewable diesel options from reputable suppliers. Our renewable diesel is CARB approved and is compatible with any current fuel storage tanks and diesel engines.

Neste is the world's largest producer of renewable diesel. Renewable diesel is a premium quality, high cetane diesel fuel that is colorless, odorless, cleaner-burning and very stable. Renewable diesel is produced from 100% renewable and sustainable raw materials and is processed very similarly to the way petroleum diesel is produced, making the product chemically nearly the same as petroleum diesel.

It’s hydrogenated. Because renewable diesel doesn’t contain oxygen, there are less issues with freezing and cold temperature storage. Renewable diesel burns cleaner than regular diesel, releasing less carbon. Since it has nearly the same chemical structure as petroleum diesel, renewable diesel can be used in any kind of diesel engine, with no blending required. Plus, cleaner fuels contribute to cleaner fuel systems and benefit exhaust systems. With 33% less soot produced, there is less soot to plug Diesel Particulate Filters (DPF) and Exhaust Gas Recirculation coolers.

California’s Low Carbon Fuel Standards offsets some of the expense for renewable diesel making the fuel cost-competitive with petroleum diesel and biodiesel.

Benefits of using renewable diesel:

  • Burns clean and works like traditional diesel – improve air quality without sacrificing power
  • Switching to renewable diesel requires no modification to equipment or infrastructure to use the fuel.
  • Meets ASTM D975 industry specifications for diesel fuel
  • Reduces soot build-up in Diesel Particulate Filters
  • Reduces the amount of greenhouse gasses emitted – a gallon of renewable diesel releases less than 10 lbs versus regular diesel which releases 30 lbs
  • Fuel is made from renewable sources

What do you need to do to switch to renewable diesel?

Nothing, just drop in and go. Renewable diesel is compatible with your current infrastructure.

The impact is BIG!

If 100 trucks each averaging 110,000 miles a year, at 6 miles per gallons, switched to renewable diesel, your CO2 savings would be the equivalent to taking, 2,981 cars off the road per year.

The 80% carbon intensity reduction for that volume of renewable diesel would also provide the same benefit as 16,396 acres of forest.
