  • diesel fuel

    Has anyone heard about the new restrictions set forth for diesel fuel. Aparently for emissions the future diesel will be ultra low sulfur. I have heard rumors about effects on performance. Does anyone know of its effects on common rail engines versus regular diesels? Aparently this restriction will be some time this fall.

    I've heard its coming and know nothing about its effect

    but having watched outboards and the E10 fiasco it scares the heck out of me...

      I have read a few articles and it appears the new low sulpher fuel could have and impact on the seals in the fuel pumps and injectors. Apparently sulpher acts as a lubricant for the fuel system. There was one report that indicated a small decrease in efficiency along the lines of 1%. I have also seen conflicting reports as to when its use will be mandated for off-road use. Some say now, some 9/06 some say not until 9/07. I understand there are additives available to increase lubrication for this fuel. It does not appear diesel boats will have the same issues the gas burners have had with E-10, (fingers crossed)

        Fuel Additive

        Schaeffer has a fuel additive that will help on reducing pump ware. You can get info at www.schaefferoil.com. The product is Diesel Treat 2000. Ive been using it for years in my trucks and equipment and soon in my new CC28. Not only dose it act as a lubricant it will boost cetane and desolve deposits.

          There are a number of diesel fuel additives. Stanadyne - a major injection pump manufacturer produces one and others can be found at truck stops, farm supply stores, auto supply stores and many others. There are several varities available also. Some will emulsify any moisture in the fuel and burn it with the fuel, others will winterize the fuel to prevent gelling. Most of them give you increased lubricy and a cetane boost resulting in increased power which gives you most of the cost back. I have always used it in my diesel truck and never find water in my water separator.

          I dump a extra shot in my tracktor tank when mowing and it feels like I addED another 10hp to the 30hp I have.

                Off Road Diesel Fuel

                The only thing that separates off road and road taxed diesel is a red die. The fuel you buy eather comes from the pipe line or a ship in wich involves millions of gallons that comes directly from the refinery. At this point how will you ever know what the sulfur level is at any given time. Does any one know how they might separate off road and road fuel? My buddy that worked at a fuel terminal in Norfolk said in the past its been the same fuel so that means that we will probable be useing the same sulfur level fuel as you would get at the pump.
