The organization that represents truck stops and travel plazas may ask
the Feds for some wiggle room when many retailers begin selling ultra-low
sulfur diesel fuel on Oct 15.
A Natso spokeswoman, Mindy Long, notes that the diesel fuel is supposed
to contain only 15-parts-per-million or 15 ppm of sulfur. She said while
refiners may be able to achieve 15 ppm, retailers who may still have higher
sulfur residue in their tanks may need some flexibility.
Long told “Land Line Now” on XM Satellite Radio that if Natso does end
up asking the EPA for a variance, it will probably be a request to be able to
add a few parts-per-million above the 15 ppm target.
