Renewable fuels producer Neste has opened three new fuelling stations in California, enabling fleet drivers to fuel up with its Neste MY Renewable Diesel.

The new cardlock stations, which are located in Northern and Central California, join the first location in San Leandro, which opened earlier this year in March 2019. To date, the four locations offering Neste MY Renewable Diesel have helped customers to reduce greenhouse gas emissions by at least 79,000 metric tons.

“We are happy to announce these new locations for our high-quality and low-carbon Neste MY Renewable Diesel,” said Jeremy Baines, vice-president of sales for Neste US. “It is a drop-in fuel, meaning no engine or infrastructure modifications are needed to make the switch. In addition, Neste MY Renewable Diesel is competitively priced with fossil diesel, so fleets don’t have to sacrifice cost for sustainability.

“We are proud of the progress made at our new cardlock locations and look forward to making Neste MY Renewable Diesel more accessible throughout California and across the globe.”

Tom Van De Pol, general manager of Van De Pol, an authorised distributor of Neste MY Renewable Diesel, which operates two of the four cardlocks in California, added: “For customers who do not have the ability for onsite fuelling, cardlocks are a necessity. Having Neste MY Renewable Diesel available at a cardlock gives access to commercial and public fleets who understand the performance and emissions benefits of using a 100% renewable fuel. Increased access to Neste MY Renewable Diesel benefits the entire community.”

In addition to the San Leandro location, the cardlocks are located in San Jose, Keyes and Ripon. All are designed to accommodate fleet vehicles, including 18-wheel trucks.

“We’re excited to offer Neste MY Renewable Diesel at our stations for those fleet drivers who couldn’t previous access the high-performance fuel and take advantage of its benefits,” added Steve Lopes, president and CEO of Western States Oil, which operates the two other cardlock locations. “Our customers are raving about the maintenance improvements to their fleets and happy to lower their carbon footprint at the same time.”
