ULSD cost about .15 to .20 cents LESS per gallon in Las Vegas than the 500ppm in northern NV. Here in Yuma it is cheaper still. Guess the oil companies are doing what they did with unleaded gas in the 1970's, selling it cheaper until everyone is stuck with it and then raising the price.

It seems that USA(lower 48) and Canada are supposed to be in sync with ULSD availability RETAIL. Alaska seems to have a delay allowance.
My questions are

1) Anyone know about our southern neighbor, Mexico? Is ULSD coming down there or is my soon to be new ULSD DP now limited to north of the Rio Grande?

2) Have any of our northern neighbors actually seen ULSD in all the usual retail outlets?

3) Has anyone seen retail ULSD in Alaska yet?

I was listening on XM this past week and they were talking about the ULSD. They said some companies doing oil analysis are having high contents of Tin in their samples. These readings are across the board no matter what type oil or engine is used. So they are recommending using an additive such as Lucas to get the lubricity up in the engine for now until they do some investigating. I heard this on the Open Road Channel 171 on XM.

Mexico is still issuing regulations concerning ULSD with a 2008 planned implementation date - but don't hold your breath. They have said they will try to have some ULSD available near border now.

California and Canada are 100% converted at this time.

The refineries are adding the chemicals necessary for proper lubricity and thus no need to further add others.

I'll let the experts do the investigating before I believe the oil companies. I believe they are adding lubrication about as much as I believe they are not making OUTRAGEOUS profits.
