The D5K and D8K engines are ready for alternative fuels

Ready for alternative fuels

One truck model. Many fuels. The Volvo FE gives you the choice between several alternative fuels that fit your assignments. And help the environment.

All D8K engines can run on synthetic diesel – HVO (Hydrogenated Vegetable Oils). And you can run the same truck on regular diesel fuel.

One variant of the D8K320 engine can run on pure biodiesel – RME (Rapeseed Oil Methyl Esters).

A wide and flat torque curve characterise the Volvo FE engine


Excellent torque at low revs. Great response and up to 1,400 Nm maximum torque. Compare our torque curves and you’ll see the difference. Climb in the cab and you’ll feel it – incredible acceleration, excellent low speed handling and firstclass pulling power.
