quote:If they are using a lower sulfur fuel, then they will have to be adding a lubricant to get better lubricity values. Most standard #2 diesel fuel do not add to the lubricity side of this fuel except through the sulfur which is what caused so many pump failures when they dropped the sulfur levels the first time. The solution was manufactures re mod'd their pumps to accomidate this problem and to my knowledge the lubricity was not added to this process. This is one of the main reasons to use a good fuel additive such as the DT2000 as it will put the lubricatin back in, and nuetralize the sulfur before it becomes acidic and builds up carbon around and onto the injectors. This along with many other factors inherent of diesel fuels (water for example).
