The reduced fuel consumption is a key factor to why the OXE Diesel engine emits significantly lower CO2 than petrol outboard engines. 1L Diesel produces approximately 2.69kg and 1L petrol produces 2.36kg CO2 when ignited. However, as the OXE Diesel consumes up to 42% less fuel than comparable petrol alternatives the OXE Diesel reduces the CO2 emissions by up to 35,5%.
