I'm not sure anyone is thinking damage, but causing damage and assisting longevity are not the same thing.

Premium fuels typically have a higher dosage of cleaning detergents and lubricity enhancers.

ULS diesel was the cause of a lot of injection equipment failures when first introduced, as sulphur has lubricity properties. Hence why products like Millers were used by many diesel users to combat the lubricity defficiency.
