I realize the LBZ will run on the ULSD as long as you add some kind of lubricant to the fuel. Does the LMM also require an additive or have they actually made a change to the engine to make it totally safe on the ULSD alone.

It is chemically added during the refining process with lubes other than sulfer....


Its only a matter of time to see if this new fuel is going to cause problems with these high pressure common rail, injection pumps.

ULSD Fuel

The ULSD issue is not the engine but the injection pump and injectors. The Low Sulfer Diesel has some lubrication , however the new ULSD will need to be added by the supplier or refiner. To be safe you might consider adding Standyne or some other quality product.

So, I'm assuming that the injectors and pumps are the same in the LMM as they are in the LBZ and the only reason the LMM needs the ULSD is because the 500ppm fuel will harm the filter/trap that they have added to the 2007 diesels.

Correct the extra sulfer burns causes extra soot the dpf (diesel particulate filter) cant handle. Supposedly , lubricity wise, the new stuff usld is supposed to have lubricity added to it to make it equivelent to lsd. USLD does however have less energy then lsd so fuel milage suffers. We use more fuel on these new engines then the older ones makesyou wonder how your burning more fuel but the new ones are cleaner.
