Switching from diesel to renewable biomethane gas could save fleet operators around 52% a year, according to the Gas Vehicle Network.

The trade body has released a new video, highlighting that moving to natural gas could deliver fuel savings of up to £29,000 per year.

Isaac Occhipinti, head of external affairs at the Gas Vehicle Network, said: 'There is so much information out there for fleet operators to trawl through, and the decarbonisation landscape can be overwhelming. We wanted a simple way to show the key benefits of gas as a transport fuel, a video answered this brief.”

'The GVN video adds weight to biomethane as a fast track to decarbonise transport. Clean, low carbon, renewable gas powered vehicles are an obvious, sustainable solution for the freight and transport industry. GVN statistics show that in 2019 almost 80% of the total dispensed volume of gas for transport fuel was biomethane-a renewable and sustainable low carbon fuel - a 22% increase from 2018.'

The trade body also says that using biomethane could cut net CO2 emissions by over 84%.
