Reducing CO2 emissions and black smoke

Reducing CO2 emissions and black smoke

Our most advanced fuels for heavy-duty vehicles and equipment, Shell FuelSave Diesel with DYNAFLEX Technology1, is designed to help lower CO2 emissions2 and black smoke3. Their dual detergent formulation works to clean up injectors from carbon deposits and prevent further build-up, enabling improved engine efficiency and less wasted energy2.

“On the advice of OCN, we switched to Shell FuelSave Diesel. The cleaning properties of the fuel are of great importance to us, given the intensive and crucial use of our machines. Equally important are the improved fuel economy (of up to 5%) and a corresponding reduction in the CO2 emissions we have achieved with Shell FuelSave Diesel4.”
