    Default My rtv 1100 has a ulsd only sticker on it. Really?

    Offroad is 500ppm and is what it came with so I assume its ok. Why do they put a ulsd only sticker on it?

    500 ppm is ULSD. ULSD is required to meet EPA emissions. Sulphur does not burn during combustion of a diesel engine, so to reduce the suplhur emission they remove it from the fuel during refinery process. That is part of reason diesel price is now higher than gasoline.

    By definition ulsd is 15ppm, 500ppm is low sulfer diesel.

    I stand corrected, My Bran F***, up to late last night. The Off Road available now should be ULSD by Fedral law.

    Check with your supplier, but in almost every case, offroad will be ULSD.

    It does in fact burn: S + O*2 ----> SO*2

    I drove and looked at pump this morning and it still has 500ppm sticker on it. Might not have changed it.
