Been to Mexico twice purchased ~ 600 gallons of fuel for my rig, 2017 Volvo D16 engine with no ill effects.


2017 Haulmark 45' Super C 600hp, 12 speed I shift transmission, tandem drive axles, 3 stage engine brake, towing 26' trailer with an 08 explorer inside.

It might have been ulsd. Regardless your Volvo will have emission problems if you use lsd. Hrck Volvos and Cascadias hve emission problems with the correct fuel. I font know if your truck uses an integrated system like the fl one box.
If it does repairs to that can be many thousands. That is an expensive nice rig
I sure would not use the wrong fuel

Well my neighour's cousin knows a guy whose barber says...…. Oooops,I forgot I posted that the OP should only listen to "actual experience" and not to listen to opinions.. Looks like you may have forgot that too.

Hey, I remember this same argument on this forum back in 2008 and then again in 2011. I see not much has changed in 2020. I asked this same question last year for a friend traveling to mexico and got mixed responses from these forum. I told my friend to check with the manufacture and get it in writing whatever the answer was.

This only affects diesel rigs from NOB visiting Mexico. What is that? 1500 trucks total for a year? Mexican trucks have no problems with LSD.

Yeah. This is a forum in the U.S. about Rving in Mexico and South America . Its supposed to provide information to visitors traveling to those countries reference rving. Mexican trucks having no problems in their own country, well thats just great. One would hope that would be the case. I told my friend,.....again, as we visit mexico this february to check with his manufacture and get it in writing , whatever the answer cause this forum has been debating this issue for years. I would say the same to the original poster.
