Sightseeing cruise company, Red and White Fleet, operating in the San Francisco Bay area in California, has switched its entire fleet of vessels from operating on conventional diesel to using 100% Neste MY Renewable Diesel.

Neste MY Renewable Diesel is a drop-in alternative to conventional diesel and is distributed via the same fuel infrastructure. The product is marketed as a low-carbon fuel that is said to cut greenhouse gas emissions (GHGs) by up to 80 percent and enable reductions in engine-out emissions while enhancing fleet performance.

"The use of renewable diesel supports our environmental commitment, a key component of our brand, and deepens the pride our team takes in our service," said Joe Burgard, Executive Vice President of Red and White Fleet. "We are constantly looking for opportunities to reduce our impact on the environment while providing the highest quality service," Burgard said.

"The use of Neste MY Renewable Diesel offered the reliability, performance and affordability that is critical to the success of our business," Burgard remarked, adding: "The greatest operational benefit has been the reduction of soot which is a benefit to both our riders and our machinery."

"We are excited to partner with Red and White Fleet by providing them with a fuel that is clean, safe, renewable and odor free," commented Jeremy Baines, Vice President of Sales, Neste US, Inc. "Their decision places them amongst a growing list of progressive and forward-thinking San Francisco companies that want to ensure a better world through sustainable solutions."

Western States Oil, based in San Jose, California, is the exclusive distributor of Neste MY Renewable Diesel to Red and White Fleet.
