Top Reasons Why the Transportation Industry Relies on Diesel Fuel

Diesel is one of the most important parts of the fuel industry. It is used in both domestic and commercial situations. It was in 1922 that an Agricultural Tractor was the first vehicle to use a diesel engine. In 1924 this engine was introduced into the truck market by commercial truck manufacturers.

Through the years, this type of engine has been used in many aspects of both commercial and individual uses. Thousands of trucks that travel our major highways are using diesel for their fuel.

There are many reasons why the transportation industry depends on diesel to fuel their vehicles. These include:

• Fuel is less expensive for the number of miles traveled

• Diesel fuel makes it possible to deliver goods more quickly and efficiently.

• It is possible to blend additives that protect against cold weather

• Is readily available for use by large or small customers

Diesel has proven itself indispensable to companies engaged in trucking and who need a fast delivery that is dependable and is of high quality. It is estimated that fleets of trucks, which make delivery of goods possible, use approximately 22 billions of gallons of diesel fuel each year.

Emissions from heavy-duty diesel trucks became problematic with vehicles using this fuel. However, there has been a 99 percent in reduction in this area with the addition of new motor design and a change in diesel fuel structure.

At City Oil we are proud of our ability to deliver Ultra Low Sulfur Diesel (ULSD) to a site quickly and efficiently. Whether you have a fleet of vehicles, have equipment on site or have a permanent storage tank, you will find our delivery equipment at your beck and call. In the winter time diesel is blended with additives to protect against winter weather.

However, this fuel is not effective if it is not delivered in a fast and efficient manner. The importance of a schedule cannot be overemphasized and a reputation is built on reliability when called for a delivery. That is where we, at City Oil, come in.
