HVO diesel fuel approved for Hitachi and Kubota excavators and wheel loaders

Research has shown that all Hitachi and Kubota excavators and wheel loaders are approved to use HVO diesel fuel.


What is HVO?

  • HVO (Hydrotreated Vegetable Oils) is the second generation developed diesel fuel
  • It is mainly composed of vegetable oils and waste fats
  • HVO fuel is 100% recyclable, biodegradable and non-toxic
  • Unlike previous bio-fuels, the new generation of HVO fuel is independant of agricultural and food-related production

Ensure HVO diesel complies with EN15940 standard.


Your benefits when using HVO fuel

  • Your excavator can be used in emission-free operations
  • HVO fuel can be mixed with conventional fuel
  • HVO fuel reduces CO2 emissions by 90% compared to conventional diesel fuel
  • Combustion of HVO fuel results in:
    • Reduction NOx (Nitrogen oxide)
    • Reduction of PM (fine dust)
    • Reduction of CO2 (Carbon dioxide)
    • No SOx (Sulphur oxides)
  • HVO can be stored for a period of 10 years, diesel values decrease after 1 year of storage
