I know the old diesel was 5000ppm in sulphur and the latest round is 500ppm but where can u gat the proposed 50ppm diesel? It is on the Shell web site but only available to account customers which i assume is heavy industry/haulage.
Can anyone help?

Just curious, why do you want to use the 50 ppm diesel?

later models are designed to run on low sulphur fuel which makes it run cleaner with less gunk. if you have an older model you can have lubrication problems, especially in your fule pump

Hi TOB,

Refer to comments I've made in post #19814.

As of 31Dec2002, all diesel fuel in Australia must be max 500ppm Sulphur. This reduces to 50ppm max 1Jan2006. You'll find that most refineries in Australia are already producing the 50ppm diesel.

The BP Kwinana refinery in Perth produces only 50ppm Sulphur. Being the only refinery, all fuel companies who purchase their fuel from BP will be selling 50ppm diesel. Interestingly we found that Shell (WA) were purchasing their diesel from Asia and this is 500ppm. We've been told that Shell will be changing to 50ppm (perhaps already).

Shell's technical office in Melbourne would be point of contact to ask what is happening for your local supply.

The attached link gives some insight to what is happening to fuel quality in Australia
Australian Fuel Standards

Regards,
Hugh
