Diesel Predicament

Question by: Sunny Mtimka Answer by: Arnold VenterWhat are the disadvantages of using 500 ppm diesel in a vehicle that recommends 50 ppm? And if there are any disadvantages, what can be done to force our filling stations to supply us with low-sulphur diesel?
Sunny Mtimka

In short: low-sulphur diesel (50 ppm) promotes cleaner combustion and therefore less wear on the engine. With regards to increasing the availability of 50 ppm, well, it may help if we collectively boycott those filling stations that fail to stock low-sulphur diesel.
