He would probably have meant 15 ppm (parts per million) sulfphur. Before 2007 most diesel fuel contained around 500 ppm sulphur. By 2010 the content had to be reduced down to 15. Better for our environement...
Some dyed fuel, mostly meant for farm, may still contain more ppm's.

Pour point ... Sounds like gel point??? But this stuff was definitely not #1 diesel (this store sells that explicitly in the winter

The answer I got the first time I came across it was "#1 diesel contains additives to prevent gelling in the winter".

I drive a Winnebago Via on a sprinter chassis. I also predominately buy fuel at Pilot and noticed the bio diesel notation. My owners manual indicates not to use bio diesel over 5% so I called them. Mercedes says I will void my warranty if I use it and they will be able to tell because of the condition of the fuel filters. I have a friend that drive a Phaeton with a Cummings engine. He called Freightliner and they told him he could use it, but would have to change filters twice as often. I also found out Pilots everywhere are going to bio diesel because of the Federal credits they get. Goodbye Pilot.

Cummins recently released a statement that BIO 5% was fine to use in their engines. As for DEF being included within the diesel fuel, that person was definately wrong.
