Neste Oil Rally to use 100% renewable diesel at this year’s event

Vehicles operated by the competition organization at this year’s Neste Oil Rally Finland, held between 28 and 30 July, will run on 100% NExBTL renewable diesel produced by Neste Oil. The organizers will run a total of 29 vehicles solely on Neste Green 100 diesel, which is expected to half the vehicles’ greenhouse emissions during the three-day event.

Neste Green 100 diesel is an excellent innovation that we want to support and use in our operations; the fact that most of our vehicles are diesel-powered makes it easy to do just that.

—Managing Director of AKK Sports Oy, Jarmo Mahonen

Neste Green 100 diesel is compatible with all current diesel engines and has been developed in close cooperation with leading automotive manufacturers and complies with the industry’s standards. Currently, motorists can fill up with a Neste Green blend that contains a minimum of 10% renewable content.

The revamped route of this year’s Neste Oil Rally will extend from Central Finland southwards to the Päijät-Häme region around Lahti. This year, the event will also be accompanied by the Lahti Historic Rally, which has been granted European Championship Historic Rally status.
