The second generation of biofuels and renewable diesel is here, but what does that mean for Beverly Hills fleet manager Craig Crowder? For the City's fleet of 445 vehicles, it means better performance, reduced maintenance, and a more sustainable way to serve the city. Crowder is proud to report that his fleet now runs on 100% renewable diesel — an important part of the City of Beverly Hills’s sustainability plan.
“After switching to Neste MY, we noticed that our fuel systems were very clean, even cleaner than they had been while using ULSD,” Crowder said. “Our DPFs [diesel particulate filters] were performing better, and annual maintenance was simple and efficient. Our trucks had improved performance, better power and less smoke emission.”
