HVO Fuel: A Fossil-Free Diesel Available Nationwide

HVO fuel is our synthetic diesel alternative that’s leading the way to a more sustainable future. Nationwide Fuels is one of the only HVO fuel suppliers in the UK with a vast stock of HVO fuel on hand that’s ready for nationwide delivery within 24-48 hours of placing an order. With significantly extended storage and reduced emissions, it’s no surprise that businesses across the UK are switching from fossil diesel to HVO fuel.

What is HVO fuel?

HVO fuel is one of the word’s purest fuels. It’s a paraffinic synthetic renewable diesel produced from 100% renewable feedstocks. Thanks to its diesel-like qualities, and because it adheres to EN 15940 specifications, the fossil-free oil is a drop-in replacement, so you needn’t make any modifications to your engines or their peripherals. You can simply top up your tanks with the environmentally-friendly fuel.

Powering your engines and vehicles with HVO fuel reduces greenhouse gas emissions by as much as 90%, NOx emissions by as much as 27% and PM emissions by as much as 84%, compared with conventional diesel, all which are key components in achieving improved air quality.

How much does HVO fuel cost?

The cost of HVO is currently higher than fossil diesel. However, the cost of ownership can be reduced when switching to HVO compared to other current options available to reduce emissions. That’s because:

  • No large upfront costs or engine modifications required
  • Existing equipment can be used to store, distribute and run on HVO
  • Reduced need for regular testing (FAME and ester-free fuel)
  • Winter and summer-grade fuel – can be stored year-round
  • Average 10% reduction in AdBlue consumption
  • Reduced storage costs – up to 10 year shelf life compared to 1 for DERV

HVO fuel approved by vehicle manufacturers

HVO fuel adheres to EN15940 standard for Paraffinic Fuels and has been approved for use by a large number of major OEMs, meaning there’s zero impact on warranties and can be used as a drop-in diesel and gas oil replacement in diesel engines of these manufacturers that include:

Heavy-duty road vehiclesPassenger carsNon-road vehicles
DAFMercedes-BenzJohn Deere
ScaniaDS AutomobilesAgco

* Our HVO fuel complies with BS EN 15940 being the British Standard for paraffinic diesel fuel which is a new generation of cleaner transport fuel for use in road vehicles. If your vehicle is still within the manufacturer’s warranty or if you have taken out mechanical breakdown insurance, we recommend you check with the manufacturer or insurer that use of our product will not affect your cover. We cannot be held responsible for any issues with your vehicle connected to its age or pre-existing condition.

How does HVO fuel work? The production process

HVO fuel is made using renewable and sustainable fats via technologically advanced hydrogenation and isomerisation process which removes impurities from the fuel. The process breaks down existing molecules and builds them up again, leaving a final product with consistent carbon chains but without the impurities that are common in FAME and traditional diesel and biodiesel.

The final renewable diesel fuel is a high-quality, paraffinic product that does not compromise fuel infrastructure, engines or exhaust emissions and brings considerable environmental benefits. HVO fuel gets its name after its production process: hydrotreatment of vegetable oils.

What is the difference between HVO fuel and biodiesel

Because HVO fuel is a stable product, it doesn’t react with water so is less susceptible to bacterial attack than biodiesel. This enables it to have a shelf life of up to 10 years as opposed to around 1 year for mineral diesel, as long as tank cleanliness procedures are maintained throughout storage.

Biodiesel and diesel producers face stability issues with fuel due to legislative increases in FAME content. Regular biodiesel (FAME) is made up of fatty acid methyl esters with varying degrees of saturation which are susceptible to oxidation which can cause logistical problems such as clogged filters. That’s because FAME attracts water and increases diesel bug attack over time, meaning these fuels have to be closely monitored to avoid equipment and machinery breakages. HVO fuel is produced to remove unsaturation and contaminants, leading a pure hydrocarbon fuel.

Reasons to choose HVO fuel over regular diesel

  • Synthetic, second-generation paraffinic fuel
  • Suitable for a number of applications e.g. generators, industrial power systems and vehicles
  • Meets EN 15940 standards and Fuel Quality Directive 2009/30/EC Annex II
  • UK approvals of HVO fuel include a wide range of OEMs so it can be used straight away without modifications
  • High cetane number of up to 90 offers improved starting performance and a low cloud point of -32oC which reduces the likelihood of waxing in cold temperatures
  • High flashpoint improves safety, handling and storage compared to other fuels
  • Up to 10-year shelf life compared to around 1 year for regular diesel

How does HVO fuel lower my carbon footprint?

  • It’s a premium quality, second-generation renewable diesel alternative made from renewable raw materials
  • Its clean-burn properties cut particulate content, helping to extend the lifespan of emission control systems and improve engine cleanliness
  • It provides improved combustion properties in engines, helping to lower local emission levels and improving urban air quality
  • The highly controlled manufacturing process enables HVO fuel to burn more efficiently and offers cleaner combustion. This reduces soot in engines and exhaust systems, cuts emissions and provides more efficient burning than regular diesel
