Re: EEK! They've taken the sulfur out of Marine Diesel!

We've had Ultra low sulphur fuel in Canada for a few years now.
I was concerned about it in my Yanmar 2GM20F.
Result of my searches was that Transport Canada specifies that an additive is put in the fuel to counteract the lose of lubricity.
But some of my research was a bit contradictory - so I bought a lubricity additive from NAPPA - big bottle for $18 - lasts a long time.
Just in case!
