Help to fill up with less impact

We’re constantly looking for innovative ways to improve fuel economy and reduce emissions. Here’s a small example of what we’re doing to be part of the solution.

Developing lower emission fuels

Esso's ultimate parent company Exxon Mobil Corporation strives to play a leading role in the energy transition; with a goal of a five-fold increase in the lower-emission fuels we supply globally between 2025 and 20302. Here are some other ways we’re working to reduce emissions.
A number of exciting lower emission fuels opportunities are being developed, including a venture to produce renewable diesel from bio feedstocks such as wood waste, and bring it to markets in NW Europe.3

Reducing our own emissions

Here’s a thought:

  • Woman planning fuel stops on her mobile phone.

    Plan your fill ups

    Rather than waiting until the red light comes on – when you may need to drive out of your way to fill up – call in at your next petrol station when you’re starting to run low.

    The more you can plan your fuel stops in advance, the more efficient you can make them. That could mean making them fit better into your daily routine, or finding the quietest time to fill up – but don’t make a special journey if you can help it.

    Esso Synergy fuels can help improve fuel efficiency

    When you do have to fill up, remember that all Esso Synergy fuels contain a proprietary additive that helps clean your engine.

    The cleaner your engine, the better it can perform and the more fuel efficient it is.

    Collect Nectar points

    Saving fuel saves you money. But if you do have to top up, buy your fuel from Esso and collect Nectar points. You can then swap these and save 5p a litre on your next fill.9

1 Comparison is versus regular Esso Synergy Diesel. Esso Supreme 25% Renewable Diesel contains a minimum of 25% renewable diesel. Choosing Esso Supreme 25% Renewable Diesel instead of regular Esso Synergy Diesel results in 15% lower greenhouse gas emissions when comparing the emissions over the life cycle of each fuel. Fuels vary both in their total life cycle emissions (i.e. from production to use or “well to wheel”) and in how the emissions are distributed throughout that life cycle. The methodology for calculating life cycle emissions and emissions reduction follows that outlined in the Renewable Transport Fuel Obligations Order 2007 (SI 2007/3072) as amended (“RTFO”).

5 Greenhouse gas emission reduction plans announced in December 2021 include a 20 to 30 percent reduction in corporate-wide greenhouse gas intensity by 2030 compared to 2016 levels. This will be supported by a 40 to 50 percent reduction in upstream greenhouse gas intensity, a 70 to 80 percent reduction in corporate-wide methane intensity, and a 60 to 70 percent reduction in corporate-wide flaring intensity compared to 2016. The 2030 emission reduction plans include actions that are also expected to achieve absolute reduction in corporate-wide greenhouse gas emissions by approximately 20 percent. Plans cover Scope 1 and Scope 2 emissions from assets it operates compared to 2016 levels, consistent with approved corporate plans. For more information see Advancing climate solutions progress report | ExxonMobil, pages 6, 10-13
6Ambition for net-zero greenhouse gas emissions for operated assets by 2050 was announced in January, 2022. The ambition covers Scope 1 and Scope 2 emissions. For more information see Advancing climate solutions progress report | ExxonMobil , pages 5, 10-13
