During the last few years they made truck engines, they chose to pay fines rather than meet emissions standards.
agreed 100% New diesel engines run fine with it. In fact it's not "Low-Sulfur" any longer. My Freightshaker requires "Ultra-Low Sulfur" (15ppm or less) Low-Sulfur is 500ppm or less. Runs fine. All newer diesel engines run fine with it. Said that Low sulfur diesel fuel will damage the engine.
