Raceway Petroleum Now Provides “Greener” Fuels At All Locations
FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
Piscataway, New Jersey, United States of America (Free-Press-Release.com) September 29, 2010 --
PISCATAWAY – September 21, 2010 – Raceway Petroleum President & CEO Nicholas Kambitsis today announced that all company service stations now offer Ultra Low Sulfur Diesel (ULSD) fuel - which is better for cars and trucks, the customer and the environment.
“Ultra Low Sulfur Diesel fuels make today’s cars run better, more efficiently and reduces pollutants,” Kambitsis explained. “These fuels are much better for the environment. We’re proud to offer this cleaner burning fuel for our customers at all our locations in northern and central New Jersey.”
ULSD fuel contains a maximum of 15 parts per million in sulfur, a significant decrease from Low Sulfur Diesel fuel, which contains up to 500 parts per million. The evolution of this new fuel comes in response to U.S. Environmental Protection Agency regulations mandating the significant reduction in sulfur levels to improve overall air quality.
Diesel engine vehicles made after 2007 require ULSD fuel to operate properly; the fuel can be used on all diesel-powered cars and trucks. Federal regulations also require that all diesel fuel pumps be labeled, specifying the type of fuel dispensed.
All gas stations and truck stops in the U.S. are required to carry ULSD fuels by December 1, 2010. But Raceway Petroleum, headquartered in Piscataway, was eager to make the switch as quickly as possible.
“ULSD fuels mesh with the evolving technologies in today’s diesel engines, as these vehicles are built with advanced emission control devices,” Kambitisis said. “For Raceway, we wanted to get these better fuels to market as quickly as possible. It is a quality product we would have implemented, even without EPA regulations.
“It’s just a win-win for everyone.”
