Here are some of the primary differences between clean diesel fuel — which is the standard in North America today — and previous formulations.
• Contains higher amounts of sulfur.
• Creates higher soot emissions.
• Higher overall cost when compared with clean diesel.
• Ignites through compression rather than with spark plugs as in gasoline engines.
• Has the highest energy density rating among transportation fuels, meaning vehicles get more energy per gallon from diesel than gasoline or other fuels.
• Has been in use for more than 120 years.
• Contains 97 percent less sulfur than traditional diesel blends.
• Reduces emissions by 10 percent when no other measures are taken.
• When used in advanced engines with emissions control measures, clean diesel reduces emissions up to 95 percent over traditional diesel.
• Offers lower costs to drivers when used in conjunction with high-efficiency engines and emissions-control systems.
• Biodiesel also can be considered clean diesel because of its low sulfur content.
• Is now the standard for diesel engines nationwide.
