    • Stranded on a plate

    • Leaking problem

      A PEUGEOT spokesman told us they had not heard of low-sulphur fuel causing problems. The company's technical manager said low-sulphur fuel would not damage diesel pumps. On the contrary, sulphur had corrosive properties and its removal would slightly increase the lubricating ability of the diesel. He also said he hadn't heard of high temperatures causing pump failure.
