Energy runs our lives.
From the energy that is needed to heat our homes to the energy that is needed to fuel our cars, we are dependent upon a number of kinds of energy sources. And while many Americans think about home energy as a source that is delivered to our homes and think about driving to a gas station for our vehicle fuel, this is not the case for everyone. In fact, in many situations road diesel suppliers bring the necessary fuel to trucks. In fact, an entire business revolves around delivering energy to a number of customers in a number of industries.
Consider some of these facts and figures about the role that on road diesel suppliers and other commercial diesel suppliers play in the trasportation industry:
- Natural gas comprises almost 25% of all primary energy used in the U.S. and is directly linked to both economic health and jobs. The commercial natural gas industry supports the employment of nearly 3 million Americans in all 50 states.
- Diesel engines today can go anywhere from 400 to 800 miles on a single tank of gas. Although most people think of these large trucks filling up at interstate stations, many rely on on road diesel suppliers to meet their refueling needs.
- 11 million road vehicles across the world are fueled by natural gas. Used in a compressed or liquefied state to power cars, buses, trucks, and taxis, natural gas is an often unnoticed energy source by the general public.
- 50 models of diesel engines are currently available to customers. By the end of the year 2017, however, this number is expected to be increase to 60.
- Diesel technology continues to improving its emission controls and is more effective and more readily available in smaller packages. for instance, an engine that can be downsized from six cylinder to four in an array of vehicles, provides a more fuel efficient car at a lower price.
- The average diesel engine today now has an estimated 45 miles per galloon highway mileage rating. This translates into fewer stops at the pump and less gas money being spent.
