KINGSTON, Jamaica -- The regular diesel fuel supplied by Petrojam Limited will have a red colour as of Monday June 17.

Petrojam said that the change in colour is in preparation for the introduction of another grade of diesel, Ultra Low Sulphur Diesel (ULSD) to the market on Monday, June 24. ULSD will be of a light yellow (straw) colour.

Manager of Safety, Environment and Quality (SEQ) at Petrojam Leon Jarrett explained that the introduction of the ULSD fuel is in response to market demand to provide diesel that is compatible with newer models of diesel engines that are being manufactured with improved emission-controlling devices.
