HVO fuel is a paraffinic diesel fuel with up to 90% reduction in greenhouse gas emissions and is a pure fuel made from vegetable oils or animal fats. HVO is a direct alternative to traditional diesel and meets the EN15940 standard. There is no requirement to change any settings or modify engines. Providing your tank is clean and free from contamination, HVO can be stored in the same tank as diesel.
HVO does not react with water or oxygen and resists diesel type bugs. There is no Sulphur or FAME content in HVO and consequently it has a long shelf life in excess of 5 years.
In cold and winter conditions HVO will perform better than diesel and is less prone to waxing. The cold start performance of HVO is better than the equivalent diesel.
In summary HVO is a great alternative to Diesel particularly with the improved green credentials shown by HVO.
