What Is Diesel Fuel?

When You Need the Power of Diesel…PitStop Delivers!

diesel supplier maine You’ve seen pumps for it at the gas station, but unless you operate a fleet of freight or delivery trucks, buses, or farm or construction vehicles, you may not be familiar with diesel fuel. So, what is diesel fuel? Like gasoline, diesel is made from refined crude oil, but it is less flammable and less volatile than gas while delivering a lot more power.

Efficiency and power are the key advantages of diesel over gas when it comes to heavy-duty commercial vehicles. In addition, diesel engines tend to last longer and require less maintenance—even as they handle bigger loads.

And from agriculture to construction, trucking to manufacturing, and beyond, businesses large and small here in Maine count on PitStop Propane and Fuels. We provide the local diesel delivery services they need to get the job done!

On-Road Diesel Fuel

If you operate a fleet of service vehicles that use diesel fuel, our on-site fueling and bulk delivery service saves you time and money, compared to the cost of dispatching your fleet to an off-site gas station for fill-ups. We deliver on-road diesel fuel throughout the year to construction companies, trucking companies and many other businesses with a fleet of vehicles.

Off-Road Diesel Fuel

Do you operate a construction company or other business that has diesel-powered equipment, or a farm running tractors or other farm equipment? If you’re currently buying on-road diesel from a gas station for your off-road equipment, you are paying unnecessary taxes. With the ultra-low sulfur dyed diesel that we deliver for off-road vehicles and equipment, there’s no federal excise tax—and you may be eligible for state excise tax refunds.

Fueling More Than Local Businesses

Our commercial fueling services are designed to work for all kinds of clients! School districts and municipalities also need diesel fuels and gasoline for school buses, snowplows, fire trucks, police cars, ambulances, trucks, and equipment. Give us a call today and we’ll be happy to review and discuss your specific needs.
