ULSD

ULSD is a cleaner-burning diesel fuel that contains 97% less sulfur than D2 low-sulfur diesel (LSD). ULSD was developed to allow the use of improved pollution control devices that reduce diesel emissions more effectively but can be damaged by sulfur. It is also safe to use with older diesels.
