Sulfur content

Does anyone know the current sulfur content levels for heating oil in the northeast? Specifically MA and RI. I'm looking to fuel a ventless torpedo heater which is dual fuel (#1/#2 oil). I see K1 kero has 400 ppm. ULSD at the pump is 15 ppm. I want to know if I benefit by using my dyed #2 in the heater (cheaper) or if I should use the pump diesel (road taxed). The 400 K1 gives off some of an odor but not too strong. I've never tried it on #2.

Thanks.

    Here's the most recent chart I could find:

    You should be fine with ulsd, but can you get it dyed and not pay the road tax?
    Kero would be better.
    Why the emphasis on sulfur content?

    Many states and the Federal government offer rebates of highway taxes paid on fuel not used for motor vehicles.

    @CLamb I would check the process first. Here, the oil company can apply quarterly for rebate, but the end-user only once a year. You have to apply to both State and Federal agencies. And.........besides the reporting requirements, you most likely will audited.
