Sacramento’s Propel Fuels takes ‘high-performance’ diesel to Southern California

Sacramento-based Propel Fuels, a retailer of low-carbon vehicle fuels, is rolling out its “high-performance renewable” diesel fuel in Southern California.

In March, Sacramento motorists were among the first to fill up with “Diesel HPR” – short for High Performance Renewable – which is manufactured almost entirely from various plant- and animal-based waste, including vegetable oils, animal fats, industrial tallow and restaurant byproducts. According to Propel, renewable diesel fuel can produce up to 70 percent less carbon.

Diesel HPR is now available at Propel fill-up sites in Los Angeles, Orange and San Diego counties and the Inland Empire. For more information, see
