Default BSIV Vehicles & compatible fuel

In the current generation of BS IV vehicles is it okay to use the current commercially available petrol / diesel ?

I do remember there is a limitation in the sulphur content of fuel that needs to be used. Maybe not of major concern in petrol vehicles but more in diesel. If so are they available in all tier II and III cities?

Appreciate your valuable views to the above.

Cheers,

Only Tier 1 Cities(7-8) have BSIV fuel as of now, which will expand to all other cities gradually by 2014.

Thanks.
So what is the implication on the BSIV engine when using a non BSIV fuel ?

The difference essentially lies in the Sulphur content which is at 50ppm in BSIV fuels.

If you are using non-BSIV in a BSIV vehicle, you increase the sulphate emission and add to the particulate matter in the environment and to your vehicles emission components.

Question Re: BSIV Vehicles & compatible fuel

I guess the fuels available now are upgraded to the BSIV requirement. I distinctly remember a fuel hike which was for that upgradation reason.

However does it mean that BSIV fuels are available all across India and waht would be the implications of using it in BSIII vehicles (eg Tier 2 cities).

First- there are 13-14 cities in BS4 list not just 7 or 8.
Second: Petrol engines can by and large happily cope with BS3 (the rest of India). The Diesels (esp. the super bred ones) may not be that happy.
