1 Petro-Canada EcoDiesel may contain up to 1% of conventional diesel.
2 Lifecycle greenhouse gas emission reductions are compared to fossil diesel with the BC LCFS default value for carbon intensity. The carbon intensity for the Petro-Canada EcoDiesel was based on current supply and calculated with GHGenius.
3 Seasonal change-out is required. Please consult your Petro-Canada sales representative to discuss the use and maintenance practices for your region.
4 Conventional diesel typically has a minimum cetane of 40, whereas Petro-Canada EcoDiesel has a minimum cetane of 70.
5 The greenhouse gas emission reduction is calculated based on the average tonnes of CO₂ released per litre of Petro-Canada EcoDiesel versus conventional diesel using British Columbia’s Low Carbon Fuel Standard (BC LCFS) approved data.
6 According to Natural Resources Canada, a gasoline-powered vehicle produces 3.26 metric tonnes of CO₂E per vehicle per year. For example, the use of one million litres of Petro‑Canada EcoDiesel reduces emissions of CO₂ by about the same amount as 943 gasoline-powered vehicles. Note: According to the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), “Passenger vehicles are defined as 2-axle 4-tire vehicles, including passenger cars, vans, pickup trucks, and sport/utility vehicles."
7 According to Natural Resources Canada, the amount of energy consumed by households/homes is a mix of electricity, natural gas, propane and fuel oil which calculates, based on statistics, to 4.27 metric tonnes of CO₂E/home/year. For example, the use of one million litres of Petro‑Canada EcoDiesel reduces emissions of CO₂ by about the same amount as the energy consumed by 720 households/homes.
8 According to the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), a mix of medium-growth coniferous and deciduous trees, planted in an urban setting and allowed to grow for 10 years, sequesters approximately 0.060 metric tonnes of CO₂E/tree. For example, the use of one million litres of Petro-Canada EcoDiesel reduces emissions of CO₂ by about the same amount of carbon sequestered by 51,242 trees over 10 years.
