Low Temperature Operability of Diesels 830596

Operating difficulties with diesel powered equipment during recent cold winter periods lead to the formation by the European Co-ordinating Council of an Investigation Group to examine the relevance of the Cold Filter Plugging Point test to specify the low temperature quality of diesel fuel.
Experience on low temperature operability of diesel vehicles was obtained from many sources within the Motor, Petroleum and Additive industries.
Examination of all the data confirmed that the CFPP test is still providing a realistic indication of the lowest temperature at which a diesel fuel will operate satisfactorily in typical European diesel equipment.
