That's the main problem . It require 51 cetane and I think all you can get is 40!
Here in Canada we have 50 cetane premium diesel and the lowest is 45
Are you sure its 50 cetane? I've never seen it specified as such here in Canada or even the lowest being 45.
This is response from John Peck from Shell Canada
Regular vs Premium

The cetane level of Shell V-Power Diesel will vary depending on a number of factors such as season and sources, but it will always exceed the CGSB standard of 40. Typical levels in Canada are in the 40 to 50 range and the cetane improver we add (to improve starting) will raise that by approximately one to two points.

There is no GTL component in the Canadian formulation of V-Power Diesel.

I hope this answers your questions, please let me know if you need more information.
