My neighbor is an aircraft mechanic and says the real problem getting diesels here is the low-sulphur diesel. It apparently is raising the operating temps of the motors so high that they are "burning out" in short order. Also mentioned that Caterpillar was saying they were getting out of the diesel motor business because the low-sulphur diesel has wrecked the longevity they used to get out of their motors. Anyone else hear anything like this?
