Canada’s Largest Distributor of Biodiesel

At Canada Clean Fuels service is our only business. We provide our customers with an onsite fuel delivery service that is flexible, on-time and available 24 hours a day/7 days a week. That is why Canada Clean Fuels is the fastest growing fuel oil delivery service in Ontario.

Our onsite fueling is for both tank fills and wheel to wheel direct fleet fueling, and for both diesel and biodiesel. What’s more, all fuel pumped is instantly logged, itemized and updated per customer, per truck, onto our Online Fuel Management System. It is there that the customer can log on and see where every drop of fuel purchased went, and can use the data to analyze the company’s fuel usage.

We can also provide out customers with our cardlock cards. We help ease cash and working capital restraints because we extend the credit terms beyond what most customers receive from any major oil company.

Canada Clean Fuels was, and continues to be, a visionary. We were one of the first companies to bring biodiesel into Canada, beginning with the pilot project we ran with Toronto Hydro back in 2002. It is for this reason that we are now the largest distributor of biodiesel in Ontario. And although a big portion of our business is still diesel fuel distribution, we continually encourage customers to use a biodiesel blend because of the many benefits the alternative renewable energy offers.

Overall, we take pride in the fact that our prices are always competitive and our service cannot be beat.
