City of York Council has become the first authority to trial a new fuel additive, which is expected to save up to £50,000 a year.

The council, in partnership with UniPart Rail, will use DiesoLiFT in a range of its vehicles to increase the efficiency of the diesels combustion. This should reduce toxic emissions and the amount of fuel used.

Cllr Andrew Waller, executive member for the environment, said: ‘We thank UniPart Rail for choosing York to trial this new product which we hope will not only save the council thousands of pounds, but will also help to reduce the amount of harmful emissions from our vehicles.

‘It’s important that we can be seen to be leading the way and making this important step-change, particularly if other businesses are to follow suit.’

The council hopes to cut 6% from its diesel bill every year, as well as reducing its vehicle maintenance costs.
