low sulfur fuel

Low sulfur diesel fuel is quickly becoming the norm. I'm wondering what the group thinks about using it in older engines like my 1982 Westerbeke 30. Can it do any harm by providing insufficient lubrication?

What are you calling low sulpher? 500ppm or 15ppm?
I don't have any wories about 500ppm. If you're getting 15ppm add some power service to it http://www.powerservice.com/dieselkleen_cetane.asp
