Our large coach manufacturer is Scania, whose guiding principle is to minimise the impact of each vehicle on the environment. By using new technology, Scania is making the diesel engine more efficient and the next range of diesel engines will meet Euro 5 regulations for exhaust and particulate emissions and low engine noise. Once again, Australia Wide Coaches is at the forefront of this exciting new technology when we take delivery of further vehicles shortly.
Australia Wide Coaches predominantly use BP Diesel. The sulphur content of BP Diesel has now been reduced to just 10 parts per million. This is 50 times less than standard diesel, and makes BP Diesel one of the cleanest fuels in the world. Less sulphur means less sooty black exhaust smoke – as much as 70% less! Invisible emissions have also been greatly reduced and carbon monoxide, hydrocarbons and nitrogen oxides are now a fraction of their former levels. All of which adds up to a cleaner, healthier environment for everyone and everything.
Whilst maintaining our impeccably clean fleet of vehicles, we now use less water than ever before by using water more effectively and efficiently.
Our brand new state of the art vehicle washbay uses a combination of fresh, recycled and rainwater with detergents that are gentle on the environment.
