Cummins Announces Compatibility With Select Renewable Diesel Fuels

Whether you manage a public transit system or pupil transportation, there is always pressure to be sensitive to environmental concerns. To reduce the carbon footprint of transit and school buses, Cummins B6.7™ and L9™ engine platforms are now compatible with paraffinic renewable diesel fuels meeting the EN 15940 specification. This approval is for current model year engines and prior years as well. Paraffinic diesel fuels offer the potential to reduce greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions by 40 percent to 90 percent over the total life cycle of the vehicle compared with conventional fossil-based diesel fuel, and can be used as a 100 percent substitute for standard EN 590 or American Society for Testing and Materials (ASTM) D975 Ultra-Low Sulfur Diesel (ULSD).
