Diesel fuel has long escaped low sulpher requirement and it is also
the reason the diesels in general escaped most emiison requiremnts
(they blamed it on fuel quality) With sulpher now ordered out, they
can now get diesel in better compliance and starting in 2008, they
will have Cat Converters too (not just Thermo Reactors for
particulates like they do now) THey fuel will work in older engines
though there is some debate about sulphers lubrication properties for
pump and injectors. The level of sulpher in fuel will bereduced over 6
years starting starting in 2007 (manditory then) and increasing in
2013 to basically no sulpher at all to speak of. In 2007 it will be at
a low enough level to allow for CAT's to be mandated on 2008 oil
