The Atlantic Richfield Co. (ARCO) announces it has developed a cleaner diesel fuel that the company hopes to soon test on California roads. The company says early tests showed using the new fuel reduced particulates by 13%, oxides of nitrogen by 3% and sulfates by 97%. ARCO next will produce about 7 million gal. (27 million L) of the new fuel to test in a fleet of diesel-powered vehicles.
