Our September photo of the month competition saw a strong field of competitors from our team, but there can only be one winner and that winner is David Browne with this great truck photography shot of one of our minitankers conquering some challenging terrain to refuel plant and machinery at the Eton Range project in Central Queensland.

 

For over a decade, governments around the world have pushed the transport industry towards using cleaner diesel fuel that produces fewer emissions. In a relatively short time, trucks and heavy vehicles have transitioned from black smoke and fume belching beasts into some of the most fuel efficient vehicles on the Australian road network.

 

The terminology around fuel and fuel pricing can be confusing. Terms such as West Texas Crude, Biodiesel, LPG and LNG are frequently used, but are they all names for the same thing? The short answer is ‘yes’. The long answer is that while all these terms refer to fuel, their small differences make a big difference to how and why these fuels are used.

When we’re talking about cleaner diesel in the Aviation industry, we’re talking about the diesel fuel necessary to power the army of ground support vehicles that play a critical role in the safe, efficient operation of airports around the world.

 

Cleaner diesel fuel is an issue the Australian mining industry has been grappling with for a while. In this seven-part series, we’re looking at the benefits of cleaner diesel from the perspective of contamination – not the sulphur content – across a wide range of industries, In part 1, we covered clean diesel for agriculture and now it’s the mining industries turn.

 

In Australia, when people talk about cleaner diesel fuel, they’re not just talking about the reduced sulphur content. Cleaner diesel often refers to fuel that is free of contaminants. In this seven-part series, we’re looking at how diesel fuel cleanliness affects the industries that keeps Australia moving, such as agriculture, aviation, port and marine and others. First up, is the agriculture industry.

 

With global warming and a shortage of fossil fuels both being important issues that we, as a planet, are currently facing, more and more resources are being invested in developing greener and more efficient fuels. Cleaner diesel is one of the 'clean fuels' now available; here's what you need to know.

 

The latest diesel engine technology requires cleaner diesel fuel than ever before. Advances in fuel injection systems have drastically improved diesel engine performance by increasing the fuel injection pressure and injection speed.

 

Now in its 16th year, three-day music festival Splendour in the Grass continues to achieve record crowds with daily attendance at this year’s festival in July at North Byron Parklands estimated at approximately 30,000.
