The new EU standard limits sulphur in petrol to less than 50ppm - in fact most British refineries are already at about 10ppm and have been for a while.

Excluding the biggest one? Fawley? Don't think so...since they haven't completed their de-sulphurisation plant yet..

If I understand right……..


“In the Budget earlier this year an inflation-only increase of 1.4p per litre for sulphur-free petrol and diesel was delayed until September. Ultra-low sulphur petrol and diesel was announced to rise by 0.5p above inflation (a total of 1.9p/litre), again delayed until September.

Old duty rate New duty rate
Ultra-low sulphur petrol 47.10/L 49.02/L
Sulphur-free petrol 47.10 /L 48.52/L

U/L sulphur = 50ppm and
Sulphur free = 10ppm”


Therefore have HMC&E taken this into effect in new published rates? If you are claiming back for ULS before 2005 (under the three year rule?) is ULS now taken as 10ppm not 50ppm?
Confused?… I am…… If you fill up in So'ton area is your fuel ULS or sulphur free?

Well they have been supplying 50ppm petrol since Oct 2000 - don't know about the 10ppm stuff.
