RVing in Mexico

I am asking for advice as to traveling to Mexico. From what I have read Mexican Diesel can or will cause damage to our American made Diesel trucks. Is that what others have read or worse yet experienced?
Appreciate responses.

Yes it will! All modern day diesel engines require 15PPM of sulfur in the diesel fuel to agree with the EPA rules. This applies to Canada and the US; Mexico uses 500 PPM in the diesel fuel that they sell. This will clog up your Diesel Particulate Filter when burned.

Now you can have an axillary fuel tank installed in your truck that can carry additional diesel fuel that you purchase in the US before crossing.

Or the other option is to delete the emission equipment and use a programmer. Than you can burn 500 PPMS of sulfur in diesel fuel.

Here is the link to the EPA rules on diesel fuel.
