Interchangeable drop-in for diesel
Store and handle like diesel.
Rock solid performance and reliabliity
Reduce transport emissions, with minimal disruption
HVO explained – HVO fuel is a low carbon, low emission, fossil-free and sustainable alternative to conventional fossil diesel. HVO cuts transport CO2 emissions by up to 85%.
What HVO is – HVO is a true drop-in replacement for diesel. It is fully interchangeable with conventional diesel, and can be mixed at any percentage.
What HVO isn’t – HVO is not the same as traditional biodiesels. In fact, it is fundamentally different. It does not suffer from filter blocking or any associated reliability and cold weather performance issues. HVO can be stored for up to 10 years and still be relied upon.

We can provide specific case studies and OEM approvals on request.
How does fuel consumption compare to fossil diesel?
The consumption rate of Prema HVO is very similar to conventional diesel if not better.
This is largely due to the fact that conventional diesel, unlike Prema HVO, typically contains Biodiesel FAME. The calorific value of this biodiesel element is lower than Prema HVO.
When comparing Prema HVO with conventional diesel, studies have discovered a slight tendency (0.5%) towards lower energy consumption in MJ/km and better engine efficiency with Prema HVO.
HVO fuel is a paraffinic renewable diesel fuel derived from sustainable raw materials.
Prema HVO meets EN15490 and is approved for use by most major engine manufactures.
The fuel is formulated from fossil-free and FAME-free sources and is certified by the International Sustainability and Carbon Certification (ISCC).V
HVO is actually a higher performance and cleaner burning alternative to fossil diesel. This typically results in our customers performing similar or less frequent fuel filter changes.
We recommend that you speak with your service provider to confirm requirements for your model.
HVO meets the widely accepted EN15490 fuel specification.
I currently fuel-up at forecourts. How can I fuel my fleet?
With drop-in, ‘plug and play’, standalone tanks, with fuel management systems and dispensers at your depots.
We provide these on both lease and purchase agreements.
Speak to an expert to determine your approximate volume requirements – from there, we will arrange an Engineer to visit your site to determine what set-up would be best for your specific requirements.
No, HVO is completely different from FAME. In fact, HVO is a higher performance fuel than traditional fossil diesel.
Biodiesel also known as FAME diesel (Fatty Acid Methyl Ester) is a first-generation biofuel. It is well known for its poor performance; especially in storage and in cold weather.
HVO is a second-generation biofuel. It can be stored for up to 10 years with no problems, and has superior in use performance to fossil diesel.
