It should not be a real issue; the ULSD fuel is actually better in terms of oil life as the sulfur contaminates the oil.

California has had it for quite a while now. When we drove down there last year my mileage dropped for 18MPG to 14 MPG in my powerstroke when I filled up in California so I'm not looking forward to it here. It's being phased in here in Washington.

I was concerned about that as well, I asked my Chief Engineer and he said not to sweat it.
I run a Lehman 120 HP. I do add 1 Qt of Marvel Mystery Oil per 100 gallons of fuel as recommended by Bob Smith of American diesal...he be da man on these engines.
