Warning stickers on Diesel pumps

ive had a few people question me about the new warning stickers on diesel pumps, worrying that it is the new ULSD and that it will hurt thier motors......

Re-read the stickers, it is actually the same diesel you have been using since you bought the turck. the stickers says NOT to use in 07 or later (newer) modle diesel vehicles. the sticker is just a warning in case the ULSD required diesels are on the road before the fuel is available everywere. running LSD (the current fuel) in those vehicles can cause damage......so if you read the sticker correctly, it doesnt affect 06 and older vehicles, its the same fuel u have been using..........Marc

i was wondering about that (do not use in 07's). that makes sense the way you said it. the new USLD fuel is to be used in the new trucks, while any diesel can be used in the older models.

so what problems are likely from running the old fuel in a new truck????

im still a little vauge on the subject of exactly what the LSD would do in a truck made to run on ULSD....but if they are going to this extent to prevent it, im sure it would cause fuel system, more than likely injector, issues

thats kinda of what i was thinking, my thoughts were it would probally take some time to cause damage, possibly shorting the life on the injectors.

We already have '07's on the lot. They are the same as the '06's.

This is going to be a big problem with people that are not as educated as us. Our brand new 2007 superduty's as you all know are still the 6.0's and can run off of the old fuel. Now you have a sticker that is prepared for the new style diesels that are not out yet that states the customer cannot run that fuel in there brand new 2007 6.0. It's gonna be ugly.

this is somehting that if the dealer takes care of properly on the sales end, it shouldnt be a problem, but you and i both know most dealers wont inform the customers that the 07 6.0's can run on the new fuel........and then wait till january when people with the 6.4's do use the old stuff.....oh we have a fun year ahead of us

looks like some overtime hours coming your way marc!
maybe they will put a placard inside the fuel tank door to specify the correct diesel to use, but since that makes sense they probally wont do it...

My concern is....

If you read the stickers, they say that you cant run our old fuel in the '07's. But in fact you can. You are oh so right. What a year we have ahead of us.

wel...no, you will be able to run it in half of the 07's......we will have a split production year. the early 07's will be 6.0's, but after january, they will all be 6.4's that you will have to use the new fuel in......so that will complicate it even more.........Marc
