‘Selecting Your Vehicles: The Right Fuel For The Job’

Chevin releases a new whitepaper to help fleet managers make an informed fuel type choice


Selecting the right fuel type for a fleet can often be a daunting task. Once the fuel of choice, diesel sales continue to fall due to the negativity surrounding the emission of harmful NOx gases. The Government response to this has been to introduce a subsidy on tax and as a result, has seen fleet managers look again at the alternatives.

Petrol has risen to the forefront but is facing competition from an increased demand for alternatively fuelled vehicle – notably electric and electric hybrid. The Government is in full support of these sales through a plug in grant scheme initiative which is available against the cost of a new purchase. This incentive supports their target for electric vehicles to make up at least 50% of all new vehicle sales by 2040.

This whitepaper considers the fuel options available to fleet managers – looking at the pros and cons of each to enable a suitable choice.

Speaking on the topic, Ashley Sowerby, Chevin’s Managing Director, said:

“Having a clear understanding of the pros and cons of each fuel type available, as well as a good understanding of the cost elements is paramount when choosing vehicles.

“Our latest whitepaper reviews the recent changes in legislation and subsequent implications to fuel types, allowing fleet managers to evaluate all the options available to them before making investments in their fleet”.
