New fuel could save millions


Share post:

IF HALF of the gasoline cars on Barbados’ roads today were replaced by diesel vehicles, the island would save between $20 million and $40 million on fuel imports annually.
This was revealed by Rubis Caribbean’s strategy and business development manager Stewart Gill, who addressed the launch of the company’s Ultra Tec ultra-low sulphur diesel (ULSD) at the Courtyard by Marriott yesterday.
He said the introduction of ULSD would provide important environmental, economic and financial benefits for Barbados and its citizens.
In addition, auto dealers would be able to expand the range of vehicles they import.
