Benefits of Ultra-Low Sulfur Diesel
The greatest benefit of ultra-low sulfur diesel is that it burns cleaner than the previous generation of diesel fuel. This not only reduces pollution, but means less wear on certain replaceable components, particularly on engines designed specifically for the fuel. Ultra-low sulfur diesel works with the emission control devices found on numerous vehicles to further reduce harmful exhaust.
According to the U.S. EPA, the combined impact of moving to ultra-low sulfur diesel leads to significant improvements in human health, carbon emissions and environmental justice.
Since 2010, Pennsylvania has required that all “on-road” diesel fuel sold within the commonwealth meet a 2% bio-diesel blend ratio. This 2% blend was mandated under Pennsylvania House Bill 1202. All “on-road” diesel fuel sold by Shipley Energy is injection-blended at the rack to ensure reliable and trouble-free motor fuel.
Even if you’re not legally required to use to ultra-low sulfur diesel fuel, there are both long- and short-term benefits to making the switch for your fleet. When you choose ultra-low sulfur diesel:
- Your work environment will be safer and healthier. There’s evidence to suggest that switching to ultra-low sulfur diesel can reduce the risk of long-term occupational health problems such as heart and lung disease, asthma, bronchitis and other chronic conditions.
- Your important assets will last longer and require less maintenance. Conventional diesel fuel corrodes piston rings, cylinder linings and other critical engine components. As a result, engine assemblies will have a shorter lifespan and will require more frequent repairs, oil changes and other service work that costs money and eats into your productivity.
- Your customers will thank you. Switching to ultra-low sulfur diesel fuel shows that you’re committed to doing the right thing for the environment — even when it isn’t required of you. When you explain the benefits of ultra-low sulfur diesel to your customers, it becomes a useful marketing tool that can generate good will and repeat business.
- You’ll be better positioned to meet future regulatory requirements. Prepare your fleet to meet the challenges of tomorrow by making sustainability a priority today. Every forward-thinking step you take to improve your carbon footprint is one that will help ensure your profitability in the future as emissions standards change.
Switching to low-sulfur diesel requires no big investment in new machinery, though you may notice some performance and maintenance changes while your equipment adjusts, especially on older machines that have built-up deposits in their fuel tanks and lines. Ultra-low sulfur diesel does require you to be more mindful of microbial growth, though proper storage and the use of appropriate additives can mitigate this risk.
