If you are a consumer of transportation fuel, you probably have a lot more questions than answers right now.

fuelguruTM is an unbiased third party advocating competition and cooperation among auto and oil companies towards higher quality transportation fuels and vehicle maintenance programs for the benefit of the consumer and the environment. This strategy is backed by stakeholder education, training and information exchange.

Transportation industry professionals such as gasoline and diesel distributors, fleet operators and vehicle service personnel should educate themselves about fuel to make better fuel-related decisions that could improve vehicle performance, reduce fuel consumption and minimize emissions. Find out more about transportation fuel programs.

Please, be a responsible consumer and at least educate yourself on the basics of gasoline detergency and vehicle maintenance.

Thank you for your support!

What everyone should know about gasoline and diesel fuel

The Future of Clean Gasoline and Diesel Fuel= NoCrude... read more 

Jim Russo, through fuelguruTM , promotes ultra-clean, natural gas derived synthetic gasoline and diesel fuels as the solution to the tremendous global vehicle/transportation fueled toxic urban smog crisis, as well as the best way to move away from crude oil.

Since most vehicle systems are computerized, fuel is one of the few remaining components that should be addressed with vehicle maintenance. What should my dealer provide when servicing my vehicle?

Clean gasoline and diesel fuels mean clean engines. Clean engines mean better vehicle performance and better environmental air quality. What are clean gasoline and diesel fuels?
