New Federal Fuel Economy Standards Expected to Increase Popularity of Clean Diesel Cars and Trucks In U.S.

Washington, D.C. – The new fuel economy standards for automobile and light trucks announced today by Obama Administration officials will expand the opportunity for more  clean diesel cars, light trucks and SUVs in the U.S., according to Allen Schaeffer, the Executive Director of the Diesel Technology Forum.

Schaeffer said the fuel-efficiency of clean diesel technology is expected to “play an expanded role in improving fuel economy of the fleet needed to achieve the 54.5 mpg level by 2025 as mandated by the new greenhouse gas and fuel efficiency standards. “

“Meeting these fuel efficiency targets will likely require diverse technology solutions and we’re extremely confident that clean diesel technology is one of those solutions,” Schaeffer said.  “American consumer are already showing us they are interested in more clean diesel passenger vehicles.

U.S. Diesel Car Sales Have Increased 27.5% In 2012
“During the first six months of 2012, clean diesel auto sales in the U.S. have increased by 27.5 percent. This renewed interested in diesels is also reflected in increased domestic sales in 22 of the past 23 months.  With more than 15 new diesel autos to be introduced in the U.S. market in the next two years, I expect diesel sales will increase significantly in the coming years.

“Because clean diesel autos are 20 to 40 percent more efficient than gasoline vehicles, diesel will be a major player in the nation’s effort to achieve the new mileage standards.”

(Go here to see a list of clean diesel vehicles currently available for sale in the U.S.)
(Go here to see a list of new diesels that will be introduced in the U.S. in the next two years.)

Likely Strategies Necessary to Meet Higher Fuel Economy Requirements
Schaeffer said there are many variables in achieving the new standards but said some of the most likely strategies include:
  • Downsizing and light-weighting of vehicles across the board will help reduce energy requirements.
  • Advancements in gasoline engines:  Improvements in gasoline engines, such as downsizing, turbo-charging and the use of direct injection will yield higher fuel economy.
  • Clean Diesel already delivers 30 percent more mpg than a comparable gasoline engine and can gain further efficiencies in the future.
  • Increased use of electric motors for functions previously run by belts on the engine.
  • Hybrids that use a combination of gasoline and electric motors.
  • Plug-In Electric vehicles: Vehicles such as the Chevrolet Volt, an electric vehicle that uses a gasoline powered generator to extend the vehicle range after the battery has been depleted.
  • Use of lower carbon biofuels like renewable diesel fuel and biodiesel.
European Drivers Already Rely On Diesel Cars for Increased Fuel Efficiency
“In Europe, nearly 50 percent of all the automobiles on the streets today are diesel cars due to their high fuel efficiency, low emissions and long-term durability,” Schaeffer said.  “While a more modest three percent of cars and light trucks in America are diesel at this moment, these new fuel efficiency targets will dramatically increase the number and kinds of choices of clean diesel cars available to U.S. drivers.”

U.S. Transportation Secretary Ray LaHood On Clean Diesel Technology In May 2011. . .
“If one-third of all United States vehicles used this kind of fuel-efficient clean diesel, we would save 1.4 million barrels of oil a day.
“That’s the same amount of oil we import from Saudi Arabia, so this is a big deal.”
- U.S. Transportation Secretary Ray LaHood (May 31, 2011)

The Diesel Technology Forum is a non-profit national organization dedicated to raising awareness about the importance of diesel engines, fuel and technology. Forum members are leaders in clean diesel technology and represent the three key elements of the modern clean-diesel system: advanced engines, vehicles and equipment, cleaner diesel fuel and emissions-control systems.  For more information visit

Obama Administration Finalizes Historic 54.5 mpg Fuel Efficiency Standards

WASHINGTON, DC – The Obama Administration today finalized groundbreaking standards that will increase fuel economy to the equivalent of 54.5 mpg for cars and light-duty trucks by Model Year 2025. When combined with previous standards set by this Administration, this move will nearly double the fuel efficiency of those vehicles compared to new vehicles currently on our roads. In total, the Administration’s national program to improve fuel economy and reduce greenhouse gas emissions will save consumers more than $1.7 trillion at the gas pump and reduce U.S. oil consumption by 12 billion barrels.

“These fuel standards represent the single most important step we’ve ever taken to reduce our dependence on foreign oil,” said President Obama. “This historic agreement builds on the progress we’ve already made to save families money at the pump and cut our oil consumption. By the middle of the next decade our cars will get nearly 55 miles per gallon, almost double what they get today. It’ll strengthen our nation’s energy security, it’s good for middle class families and it will help create an economy built to last.”

The historic standards issued today by the U.S. Department of Transportation (DOT) and the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) build on the success of the Administration’s standards for cars and light trucks for Model Years 2011-2016. Those standards, which raised average fuel efficiency by 2016 to the equivalent of 35.5 mpg, are already saving families money at the pump.

Achieving the new fuel efficiency standards will encourage innovation and investment in advanced technologies that increase our economic competitiveness and support high-quality domestic jobs in the auto industry. The final standards were developed by DOT’s National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) and EPA following extensive engagement with automakers, the United Auto Workers, consumer groups, environmental and energy experts, states, and the public. Last year, 13 major automakers, which together account for more than 90 percent of all vehicles sold in the United States, announced their support for the new standards. By aligning Federal and state requirements and providing manufacturers with long-term regulatory certainty and compliance flexibility, the standards encourage investments in clean, innovative technologies that will benefit families, promote U.S. leadership in the automotive sector, and curb pollution.

“Simply put, this groundbreaking program will result in vehicles that use less gas, travel farther, and provide more efficiency for consumers than ever before—all while protecting the air we breathe and giving automakers the regulatory certainty to build the cars of the future here in America,” said Transportation Secretary Ray LaHood. “Today, automakers are seeing their more fuel-efficient vehicles climb in sales, while families already saving money under the Administration’s first fuel economy efforts will save even more in the future, making this announcement a victory for everyone.”

“The fuel efficiency standards the administration finalized today are another example of how we protect the environment and strengthen the economy at the same time,” said EPA Administrator Lisa P. Jackson. “Innovation and economic growth are already reinvigorating the auto industry and the thousands of businesses that supply automakers as they create and produce the efficient vehicles of tomorrow. Clean, efficient vehicles are also cutting pollution and saving drivers money at the pump.”

The Administration’s combined efforts represent the first meaningful update to fuel efficiency standards in decades. Together, they will save American families more than $1.7 trillion dollars in fuel costs, resulting in an average fuel savings of more than $8,000 by 2025 over the lifetime of the vehicle. For families purchasing a model Year 2025 vehicle, the net savings will be comparable to lowering the price of gasoline by approximately $1 per gallon. Additionally, these programs will dramatically reduce our reliance on foreign oil, saving a total of 12 billion barrels of oil and reducing oil consumption by more than 2 million barrels a day by 2025 – as much as half of the oil we import from OPEC each day.
The standards also represent historic progress to reduce carbon pollution and address climate change. Combined, the Administration’s standards will cut greenhouse gas emissions from cars and light trucks in half by 2025, reducing emissions by 6 billion metric tons over the life of the program – more than the total amount of carbon dioxide emitted by the United States in 2010.

President Obama announced the proposed standard in July 2011, joined by Ford, GM, Chrysler, BMW, Honda, Hyundai, Jaguar/Land Rover, Kia, Mazda, Mitsubishi, Nissan, Toyota, and Volvo, as well as the United Auto Workers. The State of California and other key stakeholders also supported the announcement and were integral in developing this national program.

In achieving these new standards, EPA and NHTSA expect automakers’ to use a range of efficient and advanced technologies to transform the vehicle fleet. The standards issued today provide for a mid-term evaluation to allow the agencies to review their effectiveness and make any needed adjustments.

Major auto manufacturers are already developing advanced technologies that can significantly reduce fuel use and greenhouse gas emissions beyond the existing model year 2012-2016 standards. In addition, a wide range of technologies are currently available for automakers to meet the new standards, including advanced gasoline engines and transmissions, vehicle weight reduction, lower tire rolling resistance, improvements in aerodynamics, diesel engines, more efficient accessories, and improvements in air conditioning systems. The program also includes targeted incentives to encourage early adoption and introduction into the marketplace of advanced technologies to dramatically improve vehicle performance, including:

•    Incentives for electric vehicles, plug-in hybrid electric vehicles, and fuel cells vehicles;
•    Incentives for hybrid technologies for large pickups and for other technologies that achieve high fuel economy levels on large pickups;
•    Incentives for natural gas vehicles;
•    Credits for technologies with potential to achieve real-world greenhouse gas reductions and fuel economy improvements that are not captured by the standards test procedures.

Less Traffic, Lower Emissions — Crew Transportation Company Rides Clean with Propane Autogas

SAN BERNARDINO, Calif. (August 27, 2012) — Renzenberger, Inc., a leading provider of safe, reliable and green railroad crew transportation and business solutions, held an event last week to unveil 10 new 2012 ROUSH CleanTech propane autogas fueled Ford E-350 shuttle vans for their California fleet.

The event, called Less Traffic, Lower Emissions — Crew Transportation Company Rides Clean with Propane Autogas” was held at the BNSF San Bernardino Intermodal Facility in San Bernardino. Executives from Renzenberger and ROUSH CleanTech demonstrated the benefits that this cleaner, less expensive and domestically produced fuel will deliver both to the company and the community in which they operate. Attendees experienced the performance of this alternative fuel by test-driving the vehicles.

“Choosing propane autogas to fuel our fleet vehicles has allowed Renzenberger to reduce the carbon footprint of our company and lower fuel costs, while providing a safe, sustainable and reliable transportation solution to transport California employees,” said Karen Seitter, president of Renzenberger. “This area is known for congestion, and we are reducing both traffic and emissions.”
Estimates show Renzenberger will eliminate nearly 400,000 pounds in carbon dioxide emissions per year and save approximately $14,500 per vehicle in fuel costs by switching to propane autogas.

Renzenberger travels in excess of 60 million miles each year transporting railroad, oil and gas, and manufacturing employees to their work sites. Nearly 27 million of those miles are transporting BNSF crewmembers at locations across the country. In San Bernardino County, Renzenberger annually travels 2.8 million miles for its customers. In addition to BNSF employees, the propane autogas vehicles are used for United Furniture Industries, traveling twice daily between San Bernardino and Victorville.

In addition to a private on-site station at their San Bernardino location, Renzenberger refuels at public propane autogas stations across Southern California. Propane autogas has the most widely available publically accessible refueling infrastructure of any other alternative fuel, with thousands of public refueling stations in place across the nation.

“We are excited to help Renzenberger achieve their safety and sustainability goals with this clean-burning alternative to gasoline,” said Todd Mouw, vice president of sales and marketing for ROUSH CleanTech. “Renzenberger plays an important role in safely transporting railway crew from job site to job site. They’re now able to do this cleaner, safer and less expensively using propane autogas.”

The ROUSH CleanTech propane autogas fuel systems for light- and medium-duty Ford vehicles deliver equivalent horsepower, torque and towing capacity compared to gasoline versions of the same models, but emit 20 percent less nitrogen oxide, 60 percent less carbon monoxide and up to 25 percent less greenhouse gases. Historically, propane autogas costs 30 to 40 percent less than gasoline, and currently can be purchased for under $2 per gallon at many Southern California retail propane autogas refueling locations, compared to an average of $3.94 for regular unleaded in the area. It is the most common alternative fuel both in the U.S. and the world.

“ROUSH CleanTech has made it easy to switch to an alternative fuel that performs as promised — backed by Ford’s warranty, with a quality system, quick return on investment and green environmental benefits,” said Seitter.

Renzenberger plans to add an additional 200 propane autogas vehicles to the company’s fleet within the next two years.
