I don't see any. The Chevron article was written in August 2005 when information was very sketchy. It was same month that Cummins issued their bulletin that now based upon experieince they say was unneeded.

possibly d) none of the above or e) all of the above.

ULSD has been around since at least 2003 being used primarily by PC dominated organizations like Municipal bus companies withut any major problems being reported. BP and others were selling it but no signage so no one knew what they were burning. Combine that with truck fleets and now all most 4 months of 100% of usage months in California and 100% since October in Canada with minimal if any reports of troubles, its looking like another non-event blown out of proportion by media (same stories repeated over and over with exactly same wording meaning writers weren't doing origianl investigatve work but relying on the one story and worse not even attributing it- btter known as plargarism) and e-group comments not based upon facts but hersay e.g a leak may have been experienced by someone which without careful investigation one can't automatically conclude it was a result of ULSD.

For sure, less miles per gallon and slightly longer to start the engine.

I am sure our leak was purely coincidental, but not 100% sure . It is fixed and now I won't have the EPA following me around

My 6.0 PS diesel seems to like the new stuff. I have only used about 15 tanks and I have not towed with it yet but the fuel usage has not changed as far as I can tell.....it seems to be slightly quieter and I am thinking that is due to the higher cetane rating that most of the ULSD,s have. Staring also seems improved but that is just a subjective observation.

Just put in my first tank of ULSD and it seems that my 7.3L has a bit more cackle at an idle. Other wise runs fine unloaded. The test will be with the first tow.

I will be replacing the o-rings at the drain valve next weekend. It started about two month ago. Drip, drip, drip. I could not figure out where it was coming from.
On the ford diesel site there is a "fix" posted and where to get the two "viton" o-rings needed. All for $5.00. Ford sells a kit for $39.00
http://www.thedieselstop.com
Go figure.
I am leaking more fuel, causing more pollution because of the effects of the fuel on my engine's o-rings. Here's hoping that this will not affect the injector o-rings.
