The high-pressure common rail (HPCR)
direct-fuel injection systems employed in
modern diesel engines are more powerful
and efficient, resulting in lower emissions
and enhanced fuel economy. Engine
manufacturers met the technology
challenge set forth by the federal government.
Unfortunately no one consulted the
fuel manufacturers to prepare the fuel for
these important changes
Since the introduction of ULSD in 2006, the
transition to sophisticated, high-tech diesel
engines has been plagued by a number of
issues including injector failures, filter plugging,
loss of power and poor fuel economy.
