    Tangible results? Sure, its lack of sulfur will wreak havoc on your IP unless you run a good quality additive every single tank.

    Exactly :D
    On the other hand it also should get less soot, which could help the oil stay cleaner longer.
    And yeah keep the air cleaner Bla Bla :haha:

    I run soy GOLD diesel. It has much better emissions and is a great lubricant for the IP. But it is probably something different from what you found.

    Your soy gold diesel is basically a mix of low sulfur diesel and Vegetable (soy) oil which is a great lubricant for the IP.
    Actually if you run enough VO you will have cleaner and smoother running engines.
    Unfortunately if you are buying the VO it's more expensve than diesel so most people will not.
    I am working on some sources for WVO (waste veg oil) for free, which would make it cheap :D

    It is 3.64, but there is a 99 cent tax cut or something. I don't know but it comes out to be 2.64. It just came down from 2.85 like a week ago. They say the price fluctuates with the crops.
