    ATLANTA, GA, February 28, 2014 /24-7PressRelease/ -- The engine crankshaft online dealer, APM Engine Parts, talks about the consequences of using oil and fuel that contains lower concentrations of sulfur. Due to a growing international emphasis on the creation of eco-friendly products, strict environmental regulations have forced crude oil manufacturers to strip a large amount of sulfur from the final product, whether it is motor oil or gasoline/diesel made from refined crude oil.

Why Engines Are Suffering From Low-sulfur Oil

While there is no doubting that this move is a positive one for the environment (less sulfur and other additives means a reduction in carbon emissions), the same cannot be said for engines. One of the main problems associated with this change in the manufacturing process is oil that does not lubricate as well.

Since the key function of motor oil is to minimize friction between moving engine parts, it is easy to see that modern fuel types like ultra-low sulfur diesel can also lead to premature mechanical wear. Though fuel is not meant to lubricate, sulfur has another beneficial property that drivers are no longer getting: its anti-corrosive properties.

According to David DeBuc, Vice President of APM Engine Parts, "Sulfur acts as a barrier against chemicals that can interact negatively with the metal surface of critical engine parts like fuel injectors, carburetors, etc. The rise of ethanol-based fuel has only served to increase these complications, as ethanol is highly corrosive towards Zinc, steel and aluminum."

Fortunately, there are a number of additives available that help counter the harmful effects of low-sulfur oil and fuel.
