Management of Diesel Oil Burn Systems>

Discussion paper
Department of the Environment, Water, Heritage and the Arts, February 2008


About this discussion paper

The use of oil burn systems in diesel vehicles can potentially breach section 20 of the Fuel Quality Standards Act 2000 (the Act) if the addition of oil to the diesel within the engine results in the diesel not complying with the Fuel Standard (Automotive Diesel) Determination 2001

A discussion paper was released in February 2008 to facilitate consultation with stakeholders on this issue.  The comment period closed on 30 May 2008.  The management of oil burn systems under the Act is still being considered.  When a decision is made, stakeholders will be advised with a notice on the fuel quality webpage.
