Leeds City Council[LAName] – 23 Jan 2014


[CSHeadline]

In 2007, Leeds City Council compared a bio-methane fuelled Econic waste collection vehicle on two routes for a period of 6 months. This was to determine fuel consumption, usability and reliability. The vehicle was compared against a standard diesel-fuelled Econic (Euro 5) plus a Seddon-Atkinson Euro 3 vehicle operating on the same routes. They recorded up to 0.5 extra mpg by the Bio-Methane fuelled vehicle compared to Diesel, and a CO2 saving of up to 60% over the diesel.
