Specialty carrier of refined petroleum products in California switches to Neste MY Renewable Diesel
16 June 2018
Fuel Delivery Services, Inc. (FDS), a bulk transporter of refined petroleum products based in Stockton, CA, recently switched its Stockton-based fleet of trucks to Neste MY Renewable Diesel. FDS provides transportation services seven days a week, 365 days a year to a variety of clients, from small jobbers to major oil companies.
FDS performed a test of Neste MY Renewable Diesel in 20 of their trucks beginning in March of 2017, using more than 100,000 gallons of the fuel. These vehicles experienced an overall increase in fuel economy, less maintenance of their emissions systems and an increase in engine power, reports FDS President David B. Atwater. After the test, the company is looking to switch its entire fleet of trucks to renewable diesel at all of their locations.
Neste MY Renewable Diesel is a premium-quality diesel manufactured entirely from renewable and sustainable raw materials, including wastes and residues from animal and fish fat, as well as used cooking oils and vegetable oils. As a result, it’s significantly better for the environment than petroleum diesel, yet has the same chemical composition. Neste NY Renewable Diesel meets all ASTM D975 and state and federal diesel specifications.
Van De Pol Petroleum, headquartered in Stockton, California, is the exclusive distributor of Neste MY Renewable Diesel to FDS.
