Low sulfur diesel

Anyone know what the deal is with low sulfur diesel?

I could be nuts but pt sounds like bad news for new Diesel sales in the US.

Let me know.

Actually it is very good news. Low Sulfur diesel is what they use in Europe. Try a search on this forum for more info. There are several informative threads.

Low sulfur diesel (<500ppm)has been on the market for years...

Ultral Low Sulfur Diesel (<15ppm) is the new stuff hitting the pumps.

Watch for leaks from your IP. Add a little transmissin leak stop to the tank or to the filter to fix it.

ULSD (Ultra low sulfur Diesel) will be wonderful for new diesels. It may cause a few leaky seals for our older cars, but it will allow the sale of cars never before seen on this continent.
