For more than a year, UAE-based Emirates Leisure Retail (ELR), a subsidiary of the Emirates Group, has been conducting emission trials on its light-duty delivery trucks using the Zaeto D-Zel Aid diesel additive, as part of its corporate sustainability strategy to reduce both carbon emissions and NOx. D-Zel Aid is concentrated diesel additive which can be added directly into the fuel tank without the need for retrofitting or additional parts. To validate the trials, ELR involved the Automobile and Touring Club of UAE (ATCUAE) as an independent testing authority. Since then ATCUAE has been conducting regular emission tests on ELR trucks running only on diesel and those running on diesel mixed with D-Zel Aid. The initial trials involved 10 trucks ranging from 4.9 to 10 tonnes. This was later reduced to four 4.9 tonne trucks, all Mitsubishi Fuso Canter models with identical specifications, so that all parameters could be monitored thoroughly and compared it with the historical data of the trucks, particularly their fuel consumption during the last seven years. During these trials, ELR saw reductions in CO2 by 50–70%, NOx by 35%, and CO by 8%, as well as improvement in fuel economy by 10-15%.
