What is Shell Ultra Low Sulphur Diesel?

Shell Ultra Low Sulphur Diesel is a quality diesel fuel suitable for use in any vehicle that currently runs on regular diesel.

Shell Diesel has a high cetane number to help ensure smooth running and which assists starting at temperatures well below those prevailing in Australia. In addition the lubricity of the diesel fuel is controlled and monitored to help ensure that adequate lubricity is maintained to prevent fuel pump and fuel injector wear.

Shell Ultra Low Sulphur Diesel contains 10 parts per million (or 10mg/kg) of sulphur. 

Why should I use it?

Using Shell Ultra Low Sulphur Diesel has some great benefits:

Reduces the ultra fine particles from diesel engine exhausts, which will improve local air quality.

Reduces sulphur dioxide emissions, which contributes to acid rain.

Reducing sulphur in fuel potentially reduces the risk of corrosive wear in the engine.

Can low sulphur fuels be used for all diesel-powered vehicles and stationery engines?

Low sulphur diesel can be used in any vehicle or stationary diesel engine that currently runs on regular diesel.

Will my diesel engine require additional lubrication as a result of using a low sulphur fuel?

Sulphur content is linked to the lubricating properties of the fuel and some low sulphur fuels may require additives to provide lubrication to fuel pumps and injection systems.

Shell addresses this at the refining stage so you do not need to introduce additives into the fuel. Shell Diesel fuels will continue to be tested to ensure that they provide adequate lubrication.
