Low Sulfur Diesel Fuel
I hope you’re enjoying your various trips, I’m certainly getting vicarious pleasure from reading all your blogs (and those of the bikers too).
I plan to do a RTW trip staring mid next year, driving a diesel-powered vehicle that requires Low Sulfur fuel (in accordance with the Euro4 Standard of <50 ppm particulate matter).
The manufacturer of the vehicle has advised that “…there is NO WAY to remove or adjust the system, the electronics will tell the engine to go straight into limp or shut off mode if there is any tampering OR use of non low diesel sulphur fuel.”
I’d be grateful to hear from anyone on the ground in South America, in Africa, and everywhere east of (and including) Turkey as to the availability of Low Sulfur diesel.
I found a couple of discussions in HUBB re the need to change filters etc more frequently than otherwise and that doesn’t trouble me – my concern is that Mitsubishi will have programmed the engine to shut down if LS fuel is not used.
Looking forward to encouraging replies,
