LL-04 oils can be used in markets, like Europe where the sulfur content
is consistently low. With the advent of ULS diesel in the U.S., it will
also work with vehicles designed specifically for that fuel. The sulfur content of gasoline in the US is very inconsistent. If the vehicle is run only on gasoline with relatively low sulfur content, it would be fine.
Because of the inconsistency of the fuel, however, BMW won't recommend
I will be able to expand upon this more in the future.
Thanks for prying this info loose.
