Diesel fuel delivery is more popular than ever thanks to all the advancements in diesel technology. Here are some interesting facts about diesel fuel.

  1. Diesel engines compress air to one out of 20 parts per volume. After the compression process, it then sends a small amount of fuel into any of the six (or four) diesel cylinders.

  2. Diesel engines are now estimated to have at least 45 MPG (miles per gallon) of highway mileage and can get up to 50 MPG on the road.

  3. Diesel fuel is more efficient than gasoline engines. With gas engines, only 20% of the fuel actually moves the vehicle and the rest is lost to friction, noise, or other engine functions. Diesel engines, however, can reach 40% efficiency and more, making it much easier to move heavy vehicles and not exude a lot more fuel.

  4. Diesel technology is constantly evolving. Thanks to tech improvements, diesel emission controls are much more effective and are available in smaller packages. They can now be downsized from six cylinders to four in any kind of diesel vehicle.

  5. Thanks to Net Zero diesel fuel delivery services, diesel drivers can operate these powerful vehicles and be more environmentally friendly. Commercial diesel suppliers can calculate the greenhouse gas emissions associated with an entire organization’s diesel fuel usage and purchase carbon offsets to reduce wholly 100% of the emissions.

  6. We actually produce roughly 100 times more biodiesel than we did only a decade ago. In 2002, the U.S. produced roughly 10 million gallons of biodiesel fuel, which is a large number for sure. Just about 10 years later, however, we produced 969 million gallons of biodiesel.

  7. Today’s diesel engines can last extremely long on the roads. They can go anywhere from 400 miles to nearly 800 miles on a single tank of gas.

  8. Despite a common misconception, diesel fuel is actually not that dirty at all. The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) requires all diesel engines to meet the same exact pollution criteria as gas engines do. It’s true that diesel engines in the past weren’t as clean as gas engines, but any vehicle from 2007 or later is much cleaner.

  9. Diesel cars and trucks can also start up right away. Rather than waiting for all the cylinders to warm up like what was necessary for past diesel drivers, engines today are able to instantly start up and be ready for long hauls.
