MINISTER of Science, Technology, Energy & Mining Phillip Paulwell will tomorrow morning launch the Ultra Low Suplhur Diesel (ULSD) fuel at two service stations in St Andrew.

The first launch will be at the Petcom Dunrobin service station at 8:30, followed by another at the nearby Shell Gore Terrace station.

Both stations will join others in retailing the new product to the market, following years of complaints by owners of diesel engine vehicles about the quality of fuel that they get at service stations.

ULSD is a fuel with a maximum sulphur content of 15 parts per million. The introduction of this fuel is also a response to consumer demand for diesel that is compatible with newer model diesel engines with improved emission-controlling devices.
