Neste's NEXBTL renewable diesel retail availability expands into Southern
California

After a very successful debut in Northern California, Neste's NEXBTL renewable
diesel is now also available to drivers in Southern California at retail
stations. Propel Fuels is the first retailer in the world to sell essentially
neat NEXBTL renewable diesel to consumers under the brand name Diesel HPR
(High Performance Renewable).

NEXBTL based Diesel HPR proved an instant hit in March 2015 when it was
launched at 18 Propel stations across Northern California. Within the first
three months, Propel experienced a 300% increase in sales volume and
customers provided great feedback on the fuel which both improves performance
and significantly reduces harmful tailpipe emissions such as nitrogen oxide,
carbon monoxide and particulates.

"Drivers across Southern California can now experience the power, performance
and value Diesel HPR provides over traditional petroleum-based diesel," said
Rob Elam, CEO and Co-Founder of Propel. "Fleets and consumers can be
confident in filling up with the nation's lowest carbon renewable fuel."

California is a forerunner in renewable energy. Renewable diesel plays a
significant role in California's climate plan. Neste's NEXBTL renewable
diesel meets federal and California diesel specification requirements.

"We are very thrilled that Californian motorists have welcomed NEXBTL
renewable diesel and that we can help our customer Propel Fuels to grow their
business and expand the distribution of Diesel HPR, says Kaisa Hietala,
Executive Vice President, Renewable Products at Neste. "Together, we will
help California to reduce emissions and also improve the air quality for all
Californians. "

NEXBTL renewable diesel offers an excellent way for companies to reduce their
carbon footprint as well as for cities to improve their air quality. Produced
from 100% renewable raw materials, NEXBTL renewable diesel can achieve up to
90% reduction in greenhouse gas emissions over its lifecycle in comparison to
petroleum diesel. In addition, it can reduce levels of local emissions that
have a negative impact on air quality. NEXBTL renewable diesel can be blended
to any concentration and can even be used neat; NEXBTL is hydrocarbon
renewable diesel and as such is fully compatible with all modern diesel
engines and existing distribution infrastructure, requiring no changes in the
supply chain. It is not the same product as traditional biodiesel.

Diesel HPR consisting of Neste's NEXBTL renewable diesel is now available at
13 Propel stations across Southern California including several in Los
Angeles/Orange County, Inland Empire and San Diego. A complete list of
locations is available at dieselhpr.com/locations.
