Low sulfur diesel

I was told today that the new 6.4s cant run regular diesel or they shut down. And the low sulfur diesel makes the seals leak?! Any comments?

Don't know about leaky seals, but word on the street is LSD will clog the particulate filter and cause the engine to not run.

All 2007 MY and newer diesels, regardless of manufacturer must run ultra low sulpher diesel by decree of the King! or at least the EPA.

I read that it will cause the truck to regen a bit more often. Definitely let us know if anything happens in the near future 6.4LKid.

Go Greyhound, and leave your luggage with us. *maybe not intentionally*

The DPF collects particulates, then burns them off when it gets "full" i.e. regeneration. Regeneration leaves a small amount of ash. Eventually the ash will build up and have to be removed by the dealership. Using ULSD you are supposed to be able to run a minimum of 100,000 miles before ash removal. Using low sulphur diesel will cause the ash to build up quicker.

low sulfur

We own a construction company and the off road diesel is low sulfur.

suppliers didn't want to make 2 kinds of diesel.

Off road just has the die in it.

Every station has been required to carry it since October 2006.

Pump should have a sticker stating it is Ultra Low Sulfur Diesel
