Propel expands low-NOx renewable diesel to Hayward, CA

October 1, 2015 |

In California, Propel Fuels debuted “the nation’s most advanced diesel fuel, Diesel HPR  to  the “880 Gas” station in Hayward.

In light of the recent VW scandal and increased nitrogen oxide (NOx) emissions in affected Volkswagen diesel vehicles, Diesel HPR is a simple and affordable way to reduce emissions and improve local air quality. Diesel HPR reduces harmful air emissions including NOx by 14 percent, particulates by 34 percent, and reduces greenhouse gas (GHG) lifecycle emissions by up to 80 percent when compared to petroleum-based diesel. NOx emissions are directly linked to air quality in California, negatively impacting children, people with lung diseases such as asthma, and people who work or exercise outside.

Propel’s new Hayward location is adjacent to a Designated Disadvantaged Community, a region identified by the California Environmental Protection Agency (CalEPA) as suffering disproportionately from environmental and air quality contamination. Providing access to low-carbon fuels in communities like Hayward empowers local drivers to take advantage of affordable, lower emission fuels immediately, replacing high emitting fossil fuels in the vehicles they currently own.
