They have taken a step further in making your purchase not only convenient, but also more sustainable.

Reduced Maintenance Means Less Downtime and More Deliveries

Since switching to Neste MY Renewable Diesel, Core-Mark has achieved a 4% increase in fuel efficiency. Additionally, as renewable diesel runs cleaner in engines, Core-Mark will realize reduced maintenance needs and costs, which is delivering cost savings roughly equivalent to 25 cents per gallon based on Core-Mark’s fleet profile.

“As part of Core-Mark’s Environmental and Climate Change Policy, we are continually seeking practical ways of increasing the efficiency of our fleet while reducing GHG emissions,” Johnston added. “Using renewable diesel fuel presents a tremendous opportunity to live up to that policy.”
