Large ships burn 'bunker fuel'. ULSD fuel was introduced just prior to 2007 when DPF's started appearing on diesel trucks. Other nations around the world are slowly catching up with the US and Europe and if not already using ULSD, they will be in the near future.This bit of info leans me to the belief this will not be short lived. So is Ultra Low Sulfur Diesel now a must have? (HYPOTHETICAL) Seems to be quickly shifting to necessity/luxury status depending on the market or buyer?
Long term opens a lot of questions in major transportation and shipping. Not just trucks but large ships, do they run this blend or required to? Hmm. Market shift forced by diesel prices and the push for electric. Laws inbound for the ability to prove the need for diesel engines does not seem to far fetched. Or consumers get pinched and prices force shifts to be competitive. Even if large electric was involved to power gobs of smaller diesel engine chores we don't have the infrastructure to handle it. I need to turn my brain off this...
