Our preferred coach manufacturers’ guiding principles are to minimise the impact of each vehicle on the environment.
By using new technology, our coach suppliers are making the diesel engine more efficient and the next range of diesel engines will meet Euro 6 / EEV regulations for exhaust and particulate emissions and low engine noise.
Once again, Willunga Charter will be at the forefront of this exciting new technology when we take delivery of further new Euro 6 coaches shortly.
Willunga Charter predominantly use Ampol Premium Diesel across our coach fleet. The sulphur content of Ampol Premium Diesel has now been reduced to below 10 parts per million. This is 1000 times less than standard diesel and makes Ampol Premium Extra Low Sulphur Diesel (XLSD) one of the cleanest fuels in the world.
Less sulphur means less sooty black exhaust smoke – as much as 90% less! Invisible emissions have also been greatly reduced and carbon monoxide, hydrocarbons and nitrogen oxides are now a fraction of their former levels even non-existent.
All of this adds up to a cleaner, healthier environment for everyone and everything.
Whilst maintaining our impeccably clean fleet of coaches, we now use less water than ever before by more effective and efficient water usage. Our brand-new state-of-the-art vehicle wash bay uses only rainwater with no detergents, so it is gentle on our coaches and the environment.
