Guam - The first sale of ultra-low sulfur fuel took place this morning at the Shell station in Upper Tumon. Recently enacted public law requires vehicles to use this type of "cleaner fuel." Diesel engines using this type of fuel will start faster and require fewer oil changes.
Guam's first customer of this type of fuel pumped up this morning. Eloy Lizama, chief operating officer of IP&E Guam, told KUAM News, "It means better emissions for the island, cleaner admissions we just wanted to mark this occasion by letting the island know we have this type of fuel coming out of our retail stations as we speak."
IP&E ultra-low sulfur diesel is now available at Shell stations in Yigo, Dededo, Harmon, Tumon and Hagatna and will soon be available at stations in Chalan Pago, Barrigada and NCS. The fuel is expected to lower sulfur emissions by 99%.
