Gov’t upgrades standards for diesel oil


New standards on automotive diesel oil have been implemented to improve fuel quality and lessen its impact on the environment, the Department of Energy (DOE) said.

“The new Philippine standards for automotive diesel oil is in line with our mandate to implement programs and policies that will complement and comply with existing international and environmental standards for fuel,” DOE Secretary Alfonso Cusi said.

According to the DOE, the new Philippine National Standard (PNS) for automotive diesel oil contains revised technical provisions to upgrade fuel quality requirement, such as reduced sulfur content limit in compliance with Euro-4 emission standard, and test methods for more accurate evaluation of fuel quality.

“The primary impact of the new PNS for diesel strengthens the government’s consistent and continuing program towards the use of cleaner fuels and promotion of indigenous and sustainable energy resources with the end view of reducing dependence on imported oil,” Cusi said.

The new PNS for automotive diesel oil also supports the country’s commitment to the international community to reduce carbon emissions through smarter and more efficient use of automotive fuel for transport.
