HVO100 is the best clean replacement for diesel. HVO100 is produced from renewable, sustainable raw materials. The number '100' indicates it’s the pure form of HVO. For example, other suppliers also sell HVO20, a mix of diesel (80%) and HVO (20%).
The chemical composition of HVO100 is similar to conventional diesel fuel, which means engines and distribution systems can be left as standard.
Biodiesel: HVO100 is a biodiesel. Biodiesel is a fuel made from renewable, sustainable sources, and can be used like normal diesel.
Blue diesel: This is also a biodiesel, but it’s blue, unlike HVO100 which is transparent.
GTL: Gas to liquid is a fuel made from fossil sources, such as natural gas, so it is much less sustainable than HVO100.
HVO100 is currently mainly used for trucks, buses and coaches. HVO100 can be used in newer Euro 5/Euro 6 diesel trucks without modifications. HVO100 is also suitable for modern delivery vans, but it’s not always recommended by vehicle suppliers and may void the warranty, often because suppliers simply haven’t been able to carry out any tests yet. It is expected that the number of vehicles approved for HVO will rise.
OrangeGas HVO100 is made from residues, such as vegetable fats. This fuel is also purchased as locally as possible.
The advantage of HVO100 is that it can used in an existing Euro 5/Euro 6 truck without any modifications. HVO100 is also a circular fuel, which means it reduces CO2 emissions by almost 90%.
A litre of HVO100 is not cheaper than a litre of diesel; on average, it costs an extra €0.15 excluding VAT. However, it can generate financial benefits if a client requires you to use clean fuel, as you don’t have to invest in new vehicles. The consumption and range of a truck running on HVO100 is the same as diesel.
Yes, HVO100 vehicles are safe. HVO is comparable to diesel, including the safety characteristics. Delivery vans and passenger cars, however, may not be covered by the vehicle supplier’s warranty, often because suppliers simply haven’t been able to carry out any tests yet. It is expected that the number of vehicles approved for HVO will rise.
Filling up with HVO100 is exactly the same as filling up with diesel. It is still a new product, so it is not available everywhere yet.
You can fill up with HVO100 at OrangeGas in Geesburg and Hoogeveen. OrangeGas intends to increase the number of sales points significantly in the short term Keep an eye on our filling locations for the newest places you can fill up with HVO100.
There are lots of different providers throughout the Netherlands. However, not everyone offers 100% HVO. Often, HVO20 or HVO50 are available, but these are mixed with the fossil fuel diesel.
HVO100 is made from renewable and sustainable raw materials, so emissions are almost 90% lower compared to diesel. Local emissions such as particulates, NOx and sulphur oxides are also zero.
HVO100 is also available outside the Netherlands. As it is a relatively new product, a complete list of all HVO100 filling stations across Europe isn’t available yet.
OrangeGas currently has the lowest forecourt prices for HVO100. In addition, it’s a high-quality, clean product. It can be used to fill up existing trucks, resulting in a considerable reduction in CO2 emissions.
HVO100 is suitable for newer Euro 5 and Euro 6 diesel trucks. Delivery vans can also run on HVO100, but this isn’t always approved by the supplier.
The range of a truck running on HVO100 is the same as a truck running on diesel.
