The city of Tel Aviv is doing its share for the environment by converting 140 municipal vehicles to use "clean," ultra-low-sulfur diesel, reports The municipal vehicles, which use a total of about two million liters of fuel per year, began using the so-called 10 PPM diesel in August. According to the report, the "green" fuel contains no more than 10 parts per million of sulfur and replaces the current standard of up to 50 parts per million of sulfur. The report said the 10 PPM diesel is the cleanest fuel produced by the Haifa Oil Refineries today, and meets national and international environmental requirements. Ultra-low-sulfur fuel has become widely used in Europe, the United States and some other countries in the past two or three years, and will become mandatory in Europe in 2009. The report said that apart from the Egged and Dan bus companies, the city of Tel Aviv is the first body in Israel to switch to ultralow-sulfur fuel.
