Low-sulfur diesel fuel oil is scheduled to go on sale this weekend, ushering in a new era for both carmakers and the makers of diesel engines. Low sulfur fuel is one of the keys to the development of demand for diesel-powered light-duty vehicles, automakers have said for years. Under the new rules, the sulfur content will drop 97 percent to a level closer to the clean-diesel fuel found in Europe.

Government regulators, environmentalists and industry groups are hailing the arrival of the new formulation of diesel, which officially goes on sale Sunday with the blessing of the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency.
"Come Sunday it's going to be good news for cleaner air and for the drivers to save energy," said Bill Buff, a spokesman for the Washington, D.C.-based Diesel Technology Forum, which represents more than two dozen companies with a stake in diesel engine technology. Richard Kassel of the clean fuels and vehicles project for the Natural Resources Defense Council, said the new fuel could help boost the sales of diesel-powered passenger cars.
