Motorists filling up with diesel at service stations up and down the country are now used to buying fuel which contains up to 7 per cent biodiesel.

That’s the result of EU and UK government policies which require a percentage of all transport fuel sold in the UK to come from renewable sources. The blend of 7 per cent biodiesel to 93 per cent mineral diesel means that no changes are required to the logistics of the fuel supply chain or to vehicle engines.

More and more people and businesses are recognising the benefit of biodiesel, both for the environment and for their budgets as filling up on renewable fuel can be cheaper and deliver improved miles per gallon.

After very successful trials on Argent’s own truck fleet and with Stagecoach, in 2008, a number of fleets now run on 100 percent of our biodiesel in place of standard diesel to achieve huge carbon savings from their transport.

In between, there’s increasing interest in high percentage blends. For bus and truck operators 20 to 30 per cent biodiesel (B20 to B30) is often optimum for ease of use, carbon reduction and for the economic benefits that come from improved miles per gallon.

Whatever your requirements, we can help you choose the ideal blend to maximise carbon reduction, fuel efficiency and ease of use.
