right. Diesel trucks and buses get up to 40% more miles to the gallon of fuel, compared to gasoline. In addition to this energy and environmental benefit, manufacturers like International Truck and Engine Corporation have advanced diesel engine technology over the years to produce what are being called “no smoke, no smell” diesel – or clean diesel. Another big leap forward for clean air occurs in 2007, as the nation implements new rules developed by the U. S. Environmental Protection Agency, with assistance from American diesel engine manufacturers.
What will the stringent new heavy-duty diesel emissions regulations from US EPA mean to the future of diesel engines, trucks and buses?
Technologies evolve with the tremendous amount of development work that has gone into diesel products, and this work is paying off. Advanced technologies and the use of ultra-low sulfur diesel fuel which becomes available nationwide beginning later this year (2006) are applicable to all diesel trucks and buses (heavy duty or light duty) in 2007. The products will change the way people see diesels and there is a high probability of the expansion of diesel use in all vehicles, including automobiles. At these near-zero emissions levels along with the fuel economy and greenhouse gas emissions benefits of diesel, diesel becomes an environmental solution.

its low sulfur deisel. its not really good for newer vehicals.
