Red and White Fleet, a sightseeing cruise company operating in the San Francisco Bay Area, has switched its entire fleet of vessels from operating on conventional diesel to using 100% Neste MY Renewable Diesel.
Neste MY Renewable Diesel is a low-carbon fuel that cuts greenhouse gas emissions by up to 80% and enables reductions in engine-out emissions while enhancing fleet performance. Neste MY Renewable Diesel is a drop-in alternative to conventional diesel and is distributed via the same fuel infrastructure.
The City of San Francisco and a number of public transit agencies supported Red and White Fleet’s research and transition to renewable diesel during which the company found absolutely no disruption to any aspects of their operation, from fueling procedures and maintenance intervals to vessel performance and costs. In addition, they observed clean stack emissions and longer fuel filter life.
The use of renewable diesel supports our environmental commitment, a key component of our brand, and deepens the pride our team takes in our service. We are constantly looking for opportunities to reduce our impact on the environment while providing the highest quality service. The greatest operational benefit has been the reduction of soot which is a benefit to both our riders and our machinery.—Joe Burgard, Executive Vice President of Red and White Fleet
Western States Oil, based in San Jose, California, is the exclusive distributor of Neste MY Renewable Diesel to Red and White Fleet.
