San Diego’s Vista Unified School District switches its school buses to run on Neste MY Renewable Diesel

Vista Unified School District (VUSD), a public school district based in San Diego County, California, has switched its fleet of 53 school buses to run on Neste MY Renewable Diesel.

VUSD is the 4th largest school district in San Diego County and comprises 32 schools. VUSD serves more than 23,000 primary to high school students and 2,000 adult education students in Vista, as well as sections of Oceanside, San Marcos, Carlsbad and some unincorporated areas of the San Diego County.

Neste MY Renewable Diesel is a low-carbon fuel produced from 100% renewable and sustainable raw materials, primarily wastes and residues. This premium diesel cuts greenhouse gas emissions by up to 80%, reduces carbon monoxide by 24% and fine particulates by 33%, all while enhancing fleet performance. Unlike biodiesel, Neste MY Renewable Diesel is a direct replacement fuel that requires no blending and is compatible with all diesel engines.

Petroleum diesel and biodiesel contain aromatics and impurities that can contaminate oil, foul fuel injectors and clog the DPF filters. Renewable diesel contains nearly zero impurities and burns much cleaner. This can have an instant positive effect on exhaust aftertreatment systems (less soot produced can mean fewer DPF regenerations) and fuel system components (lack of impurities reduces deposit formation in critical fuel injector parts).

IPC USA, based in Santa Ana, California, is the exclusive distributor of Neste MY Renewable Diesel to VUSD.
