In Texas, Fuel Delivery Services, Inc., a bulk transporter of refined petroleum products based in Stockton, CA, recently switched their 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, reported 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.
“It was an easy decision for us to switch to this cleaner burning fuel because we didn’t have to make any additional investments or modifications to our equipment,” said Atwater. “Beyond the performance benefits, we’ve reduced our carbon footprint and significantly reduced the emissions from our vehicles which benefits both our drivers and the communities we work in.”
