The combination of improved engine technology,particulate traps and extremely low sulfur diesel makes
diesel a fuel for the future.
Since 2006 all diesel fuel sold in California has been cleaner burning, ultra-low sulfur diesel fuel. California
refiners have led the way in producing a fuel, when combined with new engine and emission control technology,
that is among the cleanest burning transportation fuels anywhere.
Cleaner burning diesel fuel is highly refined and contains very little sulfur – less than 15 parts per million.
This cleaner fuel enables new diesel engines and emission control equipment to operate at peak efficiency to reduce emissions.
Innovative new engine technology and improved emission control equipment like particulate filters also play an important role in making diesel cleaner than ever.
