Have you thought about switching to fuel cards?
Ensuring your company vehicles have a full tank and are kept on the road throughout the year is undoubtably an important aspect of running your business. The increasingly popular method to keeping your vehicles on the road at a cheaper cost – is a fuel card.
With many companies now required by HMRC to change how they fuel their offroad vehicles and machinery by switching from red to white diesel. This new Government policy is hoping to encourage businesses to burn less fossil fuels and explore greener options such as: swapping to HVO fuel, carbon offsetting or EV charging. Red Diesel accounts for around 15% of all the diesel used in the UK and is responsible for the production of nearly 14 million tonnes of carbon dioxide . It is hoped that, by limiting its use, the UK will have a higher chance of reaching its 2050 target of being net zero.
However, a major concern many bulk fuel users share is the reality that they now could have to store white diesel instead of Gas Oil. Unlike Red Diesel, white diesel does not contain a coloured fuel marker and arguably carries a higher risk of theft as it is nearly impossible to trace.
Many businesses are now considering making the switch from storing bulk fuel for their offroad vehicles such as tipper trucks, diggers and excavators to operating fuel cards, where the only fuel they will store is in their vehicle tanks and not in a large bulk storage tank.
