In duping millions of well-meaning car owners into believing we were making a more environmentally sound choice by purchasing a “clean diesel”, the thousands that believed they were making or selling a better car, and the billions affected by the increased greenhouse gases into our atmosphere, those responsible at Volkswagen (a.k.a. the people’s wagon) have committed a crime against humanity. The ramifications of this deliberate act are astounding and only beginning to unfold.
But while those of us, yes our family owns a 2010 Jetta TDI, the (now invalid) tests showed it ran cleaner than our Honda Hybrid, await the next step, we can at least use the best alternative fuel available – Diesel HPR, which can be found at Propelfuels.com. If you’re lucky enough to live or work near a Propel station (all are located within California), it’s an excellent and inexpensive fuel that does make a real difference in emissions. In fact, the California Air Resources Board classifies Diesel HPR, also known as renewable diesel, as an ultra-low carbon fuel. The fuel can achieve a 40-80% reduction in greenhouse gas emissions compared to fossil diesel. In addition, renewable diesel:
Reduces NOx emissions by 14%, PM by 34% & CO by 13% compared to petroleum diesel
Is sulfur-free, aromatics-free and virtually odorless
