Red Fuel Rebate ends

Are you aware that we are a little over 18 months away from HMRC’s withdrawal of the current rebate on red diesel for use in refrigerated transport? When this happens, the impact on fridge operators shall be an overnight increase in diesel prices of around 100%,”

The net effect on our transport operations;

Currently, the Red diesel attracts duty at 11p per litre. When this ends, it shall increase to the current HRMC white diesel level of 0.57.p per litre planned in April 2022. This significant increase of around 0.46p per litre can add many hundreds if not thousands of pounds extra cost, per year

As transport operators that use fridge units on trailers are you prepared?

Do you have an action plan?

Can you mitigate the extra cost without passing it on to an already hard-hit Profit and Loss account.

At Clean Air Technology international, we have a simple, cost-effective solution, CAT5.

Why would you not want to reduce emissions and save money, this low cost simple to use the product shall finance itself and leave you with profits from fuel savings?


CAT5 is unlike other fuel additives in that it uses the power of catalysts to deliver improvements in fuel economy and reduced emissions. Using CAT5 can improve your costs and environmental compliance.

CAT5 contain catalysts in an organic carrier that is added to fuel.  Here’s how it works: The catalysts operate in the combustion chamber to reduce energy lost in the fuel combustion process, thereby increasing work output per unit of fuel consumed.

Other parts of the catalysts operate in the exhaust system to reduce harmful emissions by chemically changing them via reduction reactions to non-toxic forms.

The catalysts used were carefully chosen and balanced in terms of chemical activity and their amount present in CAT5, with the result being a blend that works together to reduce fuel consumption and harmful emissions.

CAT5 has undergone numerous third-party trials with excellent results.  The range of improvements in fuel economy and reductions in emissions levels illustrated below.

Fuel consumption improvement     3.5% to    15.5%

Carbon Monoxide (CO)     68.8% to    81.4%

Carbon Dioxide CO2)     6% to     8%

Nitric Oxide (NO)     99.4% to     99.6%

Nitrogen Dioxide (NO2)     54.5% to     58.8%

Nitrogen Oxides (NOx)     22% to     94%

Smoke/Opacity     50% to     89%

Particulate Matter (PM)     47% to     60%

The Product

Several years of testing have found CAT5 to be a proven, cost-effective approach to reducing emissions from a range of engines and applications. It is confirmed that it does not harm the fuel system. Furthermore, diesel containing CAT5 remains within its standard specification.

The application of CAT5 does not require any changes to be made to an engine’s hardware or software, or the fitting of any additional equipment to the vehicle.

Testing on a range of different engines under both laboratory and live conditions in different countries have all recorded a range of improvements in fuel consumption and reductions in emissions., the range of improvements is significant, outstanding, and impressive.

A continued improvements in fuel economy and exhaust emissions such as NO2, CO, CO2, and Particulates.  Maintenance costs are reduced due to improvements in Diesel Particulate Filter service intervals.

CAT5 a fuel treatment that is cost-effective and is proven to reduce emissions. It does not harm engine fuel delivery systems, and diesel treated with CAT5 remains within its initial specification.

The evidence shows that it reduces emissions on a range of engine types, sizes, conditions applications and fuels. Thereby, CAT5 offers a more acceptable solution.
