The sulphur is removed during the refining process not with additives.
ULSD now has a spec of <10ppm sulphur and legislation will no doubt drive this lower in the near future.
Gas oil & marked gas oil - red diesel - has a spec of <2000ppm sulphur but legislation is pushing for this to be <1000ppm very soon.
Each oil company have their own different additives and as mentioned earlier, they are added as the tanker is filled. Supermarkets etc don't have any additives ........ not that there is anything wrong or different with their fuels, it's all the same stuff.


I think I have CDO. It's like OCD, but with ALL THE LETTERS IN THE RIGHT ORDER
