HVO Fuels for the South West
Mitchell and Webber are the leading HVO Renewable Diesel fuel supplier in the South West, covering Cornwall, Devon, Somerset and Dorset.
HVO Renewable Diesel is a premium fossil free diesel product made of 100% renewable raw materials, which does not release any new carbon dioxide into the atmosphere.
HVO is produced by hydrotreatment of vegetable oils and/or animal fats, and the result is a premium quality fuel with a chemical structure almost identical to regular diesel and can therefore fully replace fossil diesel. Unlike previous biofuels, HVO is manufactured by a synthesised process with hydrogen to create a greener, renewable fuel.
HVO can often be used without modification in diesel engines and and machinery and is approved for heavy duty road and off road vehicles such as Scania, Volvo, Mercedes Benz, MAN, DAF, Renault, John Deere, Caterpillar, Steyr and Iveco. To check that your particular vehicle make and model can use HVO, please check your handbook or contact the manufacturer.

HVO fossil free diesel from Mitchell and Webber is better for the environment than fossil diesel, with equal performance. HVO doesn't require any engine modifications and HVO diesel has much improved combustion, filterability and performs better in cold temperatures than other diesel fuels available.
Easy to start using
Most alternative green fuels come with problems; everything from charging points and specialised tanks to extra pipework and bespoke storage facilities. All this extra infrastructure costs money, takes up space and requires extra staff training.
The beauty of running hydrotreated vegetable oil (HVO)from Mitchell and Webber is that none of this is required. It can be used as a drop-in substitute for mineral diesel, it can be stored in the same bulk tank and used in exactly the same way.
Environmental benefits go HVO fuel
The UK Government aims to reduce vehicle greenhouse gas emissions to net zero by 2050 under its Road to Zero strategy. HVO, while not the full solution, could offer a stepping-stone while other technologies are developed.
HVO Renewable Diesel from Michell and Webber South West, which has been officially certified as a sustainable fuel by the International Sustainability and Carbon Certification (ISCC), has previously been used and tested in diesel engines, offering net greenhouse gas CO2reductions of up to 90% in such engines. It is also a non-toxic and non-carcinogenic.
Truck maker DAF is a big supporter of HVO fuels. Phil Moon, UK marketing manager at DAF says: “Let’s suppose you run a truck that covers 100,000 miles annually at an average 10mpg, which means it burns 10,000 gallons/45,400 litres of fossil diesel a year. That means it emits 121.6 tonnes of CO2 yearly, but if you switch to HVO you can cut that figure by 109.5 tonnes.”
