I've been driving diesel's for the past 4 or 5 years now and I had never seen this until this past weekend. I typically try to stay away from going into the bigger cities around where I live, but I had to go to San Jose, CA over the weekend. A buddy I was meeting up with needed to fuel up and we ended up at a gas station with this Diesel HPR. I had a 1/2 tank already but after reading the pamphlet at the pump I decided to try it out.

I am curious if anyone has any experience with this stuff?


Clean Diesel Power​

– Increased power and torque
– Higher cetane than regular diesel
– Cleaner combustion and emissions

Diesel HPR meets the ASTM D975
diesel specification for use in diesel engines.​

The Benefits of Diesel HPR

Fueling with Diesel HPR
Propel Diesel HPR is a premium fuel engineered to maximize performance of your clean diesel engine. Diesel HPR meets the ASTM D975 diesel specification (ULSD) for use in all diesel engines. Refined from recycled fats and oils, Diesel HPR outperforms both petroleum diesel and biodiesel in performance, emissions and value.

Performance formulated Diesel HPR has a cetane rating up to 75+, 40% higher than regular diesel, for smoother combustion and a better ride. Diesel HPR combusts more efficiently, which means more power and torque for your rig. And unlike biodiesel, Diesel HPR provides uncompromised cold weather performance. Diesel HPR is additized to provide excellent lubricity in all driving conditions and exceeds ULSD lubricity specification.

Propel Diesel HPR is not biodiesel, however, it is manufactured from similar renewable biomass sources including recycled fats and oils. Refined from renewable biomass through advanced hydrotreating technology, Propel Diesel HPR meets the toughest specifications required by automotive and engine manufacturers. This allows Diesel HPR to be used by any diesel vehicle.

Air Quality and Environment The California Air Resources Board classifies Diesel HPR, also known as renewable diesel, as an ultra-low carbon fuel. The fuel can achieve a 40-80% reduction in greenhouse gas emissions compared to fossil diesel. In addition, Propel Diesel HPR:
- Reduces NOx emissions by up to 14% and particulates (PM 2.5) by 29% compared to petroleum diesel
- Is sulfur-free, aromatics-free and virtually odorless, in 100% renewable diesel form

Outperforming B20
Diesel HPR outperforms Biodiesel B20, delivering more power and lower emissions. Diesel HPR is made from 98% renewable content, while B20 biodiesel is 20% renewable and 80% petroleum. Unlike biodiesel, Diesel HPR provides uncompromised cold weather performance.
I am on my first tank now, we shall see? How did it go for you?
I've been using Propel Diesel HPR for awhile now. I notice the 6.7 seems to run smoother versus both B20 Bio-Diesel and Diesel #2. DEF use seems to have slowed also. Regarding mileage I don't really pay attention.

Interesting, have not seen this in my travels yet.
My truck doesn't seem to like the variety of the fuels in the greater LA area. Unfortunately, I don't have the option of filling up at same locations all the time. I do try to fill up at bigger fuel stations. The "Check Engine" light will occasionally light up and then goes away after a few miles. The Ford Pass app indicates the particulate matter sensor is damaged or blocked. I haven't noticed any sluggishness or DPF plugging up. The exhaust tip is clean, no soot buildup.

I have a replacement sensor, swap it out to see if any difference.
Diesel HPR has a cetane rating up to 75+

I'd give that a try based on the cetane alone.
