On- and off-highway versions of its B4.5, B6.7, and L9 engines are now compatible with paraffinic renewable diesel fuels meeting the EN 15940 specification, Cummins says.
The company says paraffinic fuels offer "the potential to reduce greenhouse gas emissions by 40 percent to 90 percent over the total life cycle of the vehicle."
No changes or additional maintenance are required in order to use paraffinic diesel fuels, which can be used as a 100-percent substitute for standard EN 590 or ASTM D975 Ultra-Low Sulfur Diesel. Fuel filters also remain the same. Paraffinic diesel can be blended with standard diesel at varying percentages, Cummins says, including winter-grade fuels, and it has the same stability and cold properties as conventional diesel.
