Less energy, better fuel economy

Diesel fuel requires less energy to produce than gasoline. Because diesel has a higher energy density it provides better fuel economy compared to gasoline.

Reliable operability in cold temperatures

We blend base diesel fuel according to seasonal specifications. Refineries provide diesel fuel to geographically cold climates from lighter distillates and use additives to maintain cold weather fuel performance. Cloud point depressants, for example, suppress the temperature at which paraffin waxes form. In especially frigid climates, cold flow additives may be used to help prevent wax crystals from interfering with the engine’s fuel filter.
