Diesel fuel, also known as DERV (diesel-engine road vehicle) and white diesel is more expensive than red diesel because it carries more tax as it is legally permitted to be used on the roads – unlike red that is a heavily rebated fuel that contains a red dye to help it be distinguished from illegal use.
As a leading supplier of diesel, one of the main reasons for our success is that we source our fuel directly from the refinery, which gives us the ability to trace our products to enable you to get the most effective service for your machinery. In addition, our buying power allows us to negotiate vast savings which we can pass on to you.
With that in mind, we take a look at the journey of diesel for the last 20 + years.
An environmentally-friendly alternative to diesel… biodiesel
Diesel is still widely used across the globe, however it’s clear that worldwide efforts are being made to reduce its usage. Fresh evidence from the new authoritative report by the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change to set the world a clear target, means we must cut emissions of greenhouse gases to net zero by 2020 to have a reasonable chance of limiting global warming to 1.5 degrees Celsius.
How can you help combat climate change?
To help achieve the ambitious but heavily-needed plea, replacing DERV with biodiesel is a smart choice you can make as a business to help cut harmful emissions. Here at Speedy Fuels, we blend our fuel with vegetable-based oil to ensure you are using top-quality fuel. Biodiesel can be used in standard diesel engines and also alongside mineral diesel.
Biodiesel has emerged as an environmentally-friendly alternative to mineral diesel and it has been recognised by the government as a key the role in achieving the goal of zero carbon transport.
