As a way to reduce particulate matter, ultra-low-sulfur diesel, with 15 ppm or less of sulfur, was mandated for use in most vehicles, boats and machinery as of December 2010.

However, ULSD has been around since late 2006, when 2007 model-year vehicles with more advanced emissions control devices began requiring its use in cars.

The BoatUS Damage Avoidance Program has kept a lookout for potential problems with the newer, environmentally friendly fuel. Recently, the boat owner association’s publication, Seaworthy: The BoatUS Marine Insurance and Damage Avoidance Report, investigated the issue.
