Default Re: Fuel in Mexico

The Contention:
The sulfur content in Mexican Diesel is too high to burn in the new diesel engines.
Hi sulfur content clogs the emission control system and may leave you
with "limp home' mode, or leave you stranded. NO START.
Diesel #2 that is common here in the States is ultra low sulfur.(ULSD)
Diesels engines that are sold in Mx, may not have the same emission
requirements/components and can burn the higher sulfur fuels.
