Before everyone yells "This is a bad idea!", it should be noted that in Europe, Japan and the states that comply with CARB emission rules, gasoline can have no more than 10 parts per million of sulfur compounds. With all 50 states now going to 10 ppm sulfur compound gasoline, this will make it possible to use advanced de-NOx catalytic converters, which is necessary for gasoline direct injection engines running at higher compression ratios. Higher compression ratios on GDI engines means more performance and lower fuel consumption.
Can you translate that for us non-mechanics?
I’ve rebuilt a carburetor once or twice, but that’s the extent of my expertise.
