What is 'traditional diesel fuel?'February 11, 2019
To the editor:
There goes Ray Striegel writing about “traditional diesel fuel” again! What is the definition of “traditional diesel fuel” in your world, Ray?
As far back as I can remember, the traditional diesel fuel was #2 diesel. But since December 1, 2014, all diesel powered equipment in the United States has been on ultra low Sulphur clean burning diesel fuel.
I would say the traditional diesel fuel now is ultra low Sulphur fuel, and as an over-the-road truck driver, I never drove into a station where I needed fuel and couldn’t get any. So, do we need more of a supply?
Remember, Mr. Merle has to have a market for his fuel, and I don’t believe “Big Oil” is going to let him move in on their turf. Also, this would be bringing a product to market that is already available. He would just be bringing more pollution to the area.
