Fuel distributor on the road to a more sustainable future 

Southampton-based fuel supplier WP Group is fuelling change for a cleaner greener future by moving its own fleet over to the more sustainable Esso Diesel Efficient™ fuel, as it has shown to be not only more efficient than standard diesel fuel, but also more cost-effective and improves the carbon footprint of the vehicles that use it.

The WP Group’s Fuelling Change strategy demonstrates its commitment to more sustainable and efficient fuelling solutions that provide practical benefits, both commercially and environmentally.
The innovative company provides a range of fuel management solutions which improve operational efficiencies to UK customers in the fields of construction, traffic and fleet, airports, port and marine, agriculture, energy and power.
The Esso Diesel Efficient™ fuel delivers lower CO2 emissions, resulting in cleaner air quality. Compared to standard Esso™ diesel, the Esso Diesel Efficient™ fuel helps to reduce Nitrogen Oxide emissions by an average of 10 per cent and carbon dioxide emissions by an average of 2.8 per cent.
Independent tests on Esso Diesel Efficient™ fuel also showed a reduction in fuel use of 2.8%, amounting to 28 litres of fuel saved for every 1000 litres purchased and a saving on the business fuel bill.
Mark Clouter, business development sales manager at WP Group, said:
“We’ve seen the benefits that this additised fuel can deliver and have switched our own fleet to run on Esso Diesel Efficient™ fuel to support our company’s sustainability in the future.
“We recognise that our position as a supplier of diesel products, in today’s market, requires continual business evolution and this allows us to support the increasingly demanding requirements our customers are faced with when working to achieve their business objectives.
“We offer a comprehensive selection of fuelling solutions, from ISO standard diesel to HVO, a fossil-free, low carbon drop-in diesel replacement. And, importantly, we work with our customers to ensure, whichever fuel they use, it is used in the most efficient way possible.
“Our own switch to using Esso Diesel Efficient™ fuel in our fleet is a small step but a logical and significant one towards fuelling change.”
Tests at Millbrook Proving Ground, one of the most comprehensive test facilities in the world for conducting independent fuels testing, conducted with heavy-duty vehicles over a five-month period of normal daily on-road operations found that Esso Diesel Efficient™ fuel helped to reduce emissions; 10% NOx, 22% PM and 2.8% CO2, and improve fuel consumption by an average of 2.8% when compared to unadditised diesel.
Vehicle type, engine type, driving behaviour, and other factors also impact fuel and vehicle performance, emissions, and fuel economy. You can find out more about Esso Diesel Efficient™ fuel and the independent tests performed at Millbrook Proving Ground Ltd at
