The specified country-specific sulfur bandwidths only apply for the point in time when they were determined between winter 2013/2014 and winter 2015/2016. It must be assumed that there will be a reduction in sulfur content in the future, not an increase.

Countries with multiple classifications offer fuel grades with various sulfur content at the same time. No information is available for countries that are not listed.
