News from Renault: Oil developer Millers Oils has has invested more than £200,000 in two new trucks to stay ahead of upcoming emissions regulation changes.
The Renault D18s not only meet Euro-6 standards but also feature full height cabs, air conditioning, microwaves and fridges for driver comfort.
“The introduction of some of the UK’s first Euro-6 trucks to our fleet is a great testament to the company’s success over the last year,” says Nevil Hall, Joint Managing Director, Millers Oils. “We’re committed to providing innovative oil technologies to our customers and believe in implementing efficient technologies across all aspects of our business.”
From the beginning of this year all new trucks and buses registered within Europe must be equipped with a Euro-6 certified engine. The new regulations require significant reductions in tail-pipe emissions along with other operational changes, including a 75% reduction of NOX emissions and 66% reduction of particulate matter compared to Euro-5. The introduction of Euro 6 vehicles to the Millers Oils fleet enables the company to continue delivering products to its customers in Low Emission Zones.
The targets set by Euro-6 have required vehicle manufacturers to develop more efficient engines for their vehicles. Millers Oils is working alongside these manufacturers to develop products that reduce emissions and improve efficiency, durability and fuel economy. The company treats the fuel used in its fleet vehicles with Millers Oils’ additives to ensure that vehicles run at optimum efficiency.
“Regulations such as Euro-6 push not only vehicle manufacturers but also suppliers like ourselves to research new and exciting technologies,” says Hall. “We help manufacturers reach the targets set by their specific industries and as a result consumers get all the benefits of decreased fuel consumption and reduced component wear.”
