What is premium diesel fuel?

0

Until recently, premium diesel was anything the seller wanted it to be. It could be any combination of fuel characteristics that a particular market demanded. The lack of standards to define “premium” meant that a fuel could be labeled premium and marketed alongside a competitor’s premium fuel that met fewer performance standards. Usually, it was difficult to differentiate one product from another, so the lower-priced product inevitably had an advantage.

Back to Listings There are no specific standards or guidelines established to govern classifying a Diesel Fuel as a Premium Diesel Fuel. While there are octane standards defined for gasoline which determines a difference between grades of gas there are no such specification standards for diesel fuel.

• There is no definition of premium fuel, so the term eally means nothing and is over used by suppliers. For a descrition of the characteristics proposed for “premium diesel” see this Cheveron bulletin.
