Various marketers that handle ultra low sulfur diesel have reported problems such as advanced corrosion that might be linked to that product. The Petroleum Equipment Institute has announced the implementation of a brief on-line survey that will help identify marketers who have concerns about ULSD storage. Concerns might include accelerated corrosion (rust), unexpected operational problems, gasket or seal problems and/or premature failure of equipment or parts.
You are encouraged to respond to the survey whether or not you have encountered any ULSD problems, but only those with first-hand experience in ULSD storage or transportation should participate. Your input will provide information to determine if an issue exists and if further industry action is required.
Survey Deadline is April 6
