The aim of this research is to assess the content of sulfur in Diesel samples that traded in Tirana. This study has rich for a period January 2010 to June 2012. All samples are taken random in fuel station in axe of the road. The total of analyzed samples are 47. Results show that 7 samples analyzed in 2010 have high sulfur content over 350 ppm which has been allowed until January of 2011. In 2011 we have 7 samples with sulfur content above 10 ppm and in 2012 we have 4 samples over 10 ppm. From the results obtained from this study show that 18 of total samples analyzed is above the adopted standard for sulfur content. This relatively high percentage of the analyzed samples may come as a result of the use of diesel D2 which is allowed for consumption by heavy agricultural vehicles as levels of sulfur content in these samples is much higher than the level required. Given this result the level of SO2 emitted into the environment is very high and is one of the most important pollutants in the quality of air in urban areas.
