    hey i drive an 2004 f-250 6.0 Turbo Diesel and was wondering if i should use the new ultra-low highway sulfer fuel or the older kind, ive heard that the older kind is best for trucks and the newer kind is required on '07 and later models. so help me please.:help:

    all the fuel around here is ultra low sulfer 07 and up compliant you cant get the low sulfer from the pump anymore here in ct, but to answer your question yes its fine in your truck i ussually run some diesel power service to keep thngs lubed up. but if i had a choice i would go with the old stuff.

    I bet you would be hard pressed to find the old stuff, especially after the end of this year.

    You're so darn practical.

    Good luck OP, you really don't have a choice thanks to the enviro-nazis. Get some fuel additives and use those to make up for the lack of sulfur.

    Buy the old low sulpher stuff if you still can. It has more BTU's or heat energy and will give you slightly better milage.
