Lanka Super Diesel 4-star, a new variety of diesel with low sulfur content will be introduced to the local market from tomorrow, the Petroleum Industries Minister Anura Priyadarshana Yapa said today.

He said the new product will be available at Ceypetco outlets and the price will be the same as Lanka Super Diesel -- Rs.145 a litre. The minister told a news conference that sulfur content of the new product was between 10 and 50 parts per million (ppm).

He said the new product would increase engine output, make it fuel efficient and protect the components in advanced emission systems.

Meanwhile the minister said the broken buoy had been repaired and that no shipping company had asked for demurrage. (Lahiru Pothmulla)

    Sounds like we are being cheated on. Once again. The Lanka Super Diesel that already was for sale is actualy low sulfur diesel. 19% price increase in Diesel is what I read here!

    This is ULSD - Ultra Low Sulphur Diesel. They have no choice but to get ULSD as producers make only ULSD!
