The Enezol Company released results from an in-depth independent fuel efficiency trial, revealing that Enezol Energize diesel fuel achieves fuel savings of up to 50.45% compared to standard diesel fuel.
The fuel trial was conducted by Australia's independent transport and emissions testing consultancy Abmarc, in conjunction with Enezol's Australian fuel distributor, Refuelling Solutions.
The corresponding test data uncovered multiple fuel efficiency improvements across a range of operating conditions including engine idling, city driving, and highway driving. Most notably, a 50.45% reduction in engine idle fuel consumption was observed when Enezol Energize Diesel fuel was used, according to the company.
The U.S. Department of Energy estimates close to 1 billion gallons of diesel fuel is burned by long-haul trucks alone in the U.S. each year, simply from idling, according to Enezol. In the U.S, this results in the emission of approximately 11 million tons of CO2, 55,000 tons of nitrogen oxides, and 400 tons of particulate matter.
The U.S. National Renewable Energy Laboratory estimates that a broad range of commercial diesel vehicles: transit buses, refuse trucks, short-haul trucks, etc. spend upwards of 40% or more of their daily operating time, engine idling, according to Enezol.
"It's shocking how much negative impact engine idling has on overall fuel consumption and the environment," said David Massey, a company executive. "The data clearly shows that reducing engine idle fuel consumption using Energize Diesel fuel can significantly reduce carbon emissions and provide much-needed fuel savings for vehicle operators."
